Japanese Invasion Money-Three Note Set

  • $80.00

This set features three examples of Japanese invasion money (AKA occupation money) officially know as Southern Development Bank Notes. After invading colonies and other states the Japanese would confiscate all hard currency and replace it with locally printed notes bearing "The Japanese Government".

When the Japanese lost control of an area their occupation money became worthless. By the end of the war most of it had been tossed in the trash. Large sums were left on the streets to be swept up and discarded. The little that survived was mostly kept as souvenirs.

Japanese invasion money was issued in:
Malaya, Singapore, North Borneo, Sarawak and Brunei (now Malaysia)--Dollars
Dutch (or Netherlands) East Indies (now Indonesia)--Gulden
Oceania (new Guinea and the Solomon and Gilbert Islands)--Shillings

This set features Japanese invasion money from the Philippines, Malaya, and Dutch East Indies. All three notes are in good condition and would make a great gift for any one interested in history. Or anyone looking for something different.

The notes are displayed in a nice floating frame and would look great in any home or office. Most people have never seen Japanese Invasion money. This set is sure to be a conversation starter.
