This 50 kronen note is dated 12 September 1940 and was issued by the Bohmen & Mahren Protectorate government.  I find the design very similar to the 10- and 20-kronen notes I listed above dating from 1942 and 1944.

The 1990's Bosnia conflict caused massive disruption to the lives of those involved.  Inflation plagued the economy and this note shows what can happen even in the modern days.  This 10 dinara note from July 1992 was over-printed to become a 100,000 dinara note in November 1993.

This Cambodia 500 riels note is identical to one I shared above except for the signatures; these signatures date this note to 1972 (as opposed to 1968 for the one above.)  This design was actually used from 1958-1972.



Two years later, in 1974, the 500 riels note looked like this and the country had become the Khmer Republic.  The only vestige of French colonial times in the design is the 'Banque Nationale du Cambodge' French language on the back.

Yet another Federal Reserve Bank of China (a Japanese puppet bank) banknote, this 50 yuan note was issued in 1945.


This Imperial Japanese government note is a Japanese military issue for use in China issued in 1940.  It differs slightly from another I've listed previously because of the title across the top.

This is the 10 kuna banknote issued by Croatia and dated 30 August 1941.  German and Italian forces had invaded Yugoslavia in April and by the end of May, a fascist puppet state was issuing money like this.  My note has a double-letter prefix to the serial number but there is a slightly more rare single-letter prefix issue as well.
I think this is a pretty note although the colors are drab, to say the least.

The 1961 issue of the National Bank of Cuba's 5 peso note is nothing too special for this category of 'The Money of War'.  The back side of the note, however, depicts a scene from Castro's 'invasion' of the island.  The title at the top left says 'September-October 1958 Invasion'.  This date would place the 'invasion' scene after the Battle of Las Mercedes at a time when Castro felt he could come out of the mountains and face the Cuban Army for control of Cuba's cities.

This Mexican 1 peso note was issued in 1943.  Published by the American Banknote Company, this money is quite beautiful and well-designed.

This 50-centavos banknote was issued by the Mexican state of Chihuahua and is dated September 18,1915.  Like much of the paper money of this time and place, the paper is low-quality and the design is more simple than much Mexican paper money from other times.

This is the Peru 1,000 intis banknote of 1988.  Pictured at right is Andrés Avelino Cáceres, a Peruvian President and national hero for his role as general.

Between the 1850's and 1880's he fought against Ecuadorian, Spanish and Chilean forces in various wars and served as President of Peru three times in the 1880's and 1890's.

If you were a US soldier in the Korean War, this series 481 50-cent note might have been in your pocket.

Pictured above is a recent acquisition, an Australian 1942 1 pound note.  George VI is pictured at right while a watermark of Captain Cook is (invisible in this scan) in the blank oval at left.  The Armitage/McFarlane signatures date this to 1942. The design was used from 1938-1952.
Unfortunately, a small piece is missing on the bottom edge, center and the upper left corner.  Oh, well, a note like this is rare and I take what I find!

Pictured above is a 5 livre ("pounds") assignat note from 1793.  The top and the bottom border contains the following 'Created the 10th of Brumaire, Year 2 of the French Republic'  The French Revolution brought us use of the metric system but also a new calendar.  I think Brumaire is around October/November and has something to do with 'fog' ('the foggy month' so to speak) and the 10th equates to 31 October; the second year of the First Republic (are we on the Fifth now?) equates to 1793.
The note is uniface (blank on the back) and contains a blind stamp in the white space to the left of the signature, Gilles Somebody.  The notes were cut out of sheets by hand and you can see the uneven border on this one.

This 25-cent MPC, series 692, was issued for use in Vietnam on June 1, 1971 and withdrawn on March 15, 1973. It was the last series ever used.
Unfortunately, this note is missing corners.
