Impress not displaying fonts correctly

I'm running LO Version: 6.0.7.3 with Build ID: 1:6.0.7-0ubuntu0.18.04.2. When working with slides using fonts from the Gotham family, text renders incorrectly both in the edit mode, and when exported to jpg or png files. Here's how the font is supposed to look (this was exported around four months ago - I'm not sure which release of LibreOffice I was using at the time):

And here's what I'm getting now (exporting from the same file/font):

A close examination (especially of the number "3") shows that this isn't just a bold version of the original: it's an entirely different font. I've reproduced the problem using LibreOffice on Fedora 29 and installing the older LO 6.0.0.6 package on Ubuntu 18.04. Any ideas what's going on?

Thanks,

UPDATE: Based on Mike Kaganski's comment below, it seems that the problem isn't that LO is displaying the wrong font, but that it's displaying the correct font using bold - and that there's no obvious way to remove the bold.
