Collectible Currency

Japanese Military Currency WWII

During World War II in the Philippines, the occupying Japanese government issued a fiat currency in several denominations; this is known as the Japanese government-issued Philippine fiat peso. … The Second Philippine Republic under President José P. Laurel outlawed possession of guerrilla currency, and declared a monopoly on the issuance of money, so that anyone found to possess guerrilla notes could be arrested or even executed.

Some Filipinos called the fiat peso “Mickey Mouse money”. Many survivors of the war tell stories of going to the market laden with suitcases or “bayóng” (native bags made of woven coconut or buri leaf strips) overflowing with the Japanese-issued bills. According to one witness, 75 “Mickey Mouse” pesos, or about 35 U.S. dollars at that time, could buy one duck egg. In 1944, a box of matches cost more than 100 Mickey Mouse pesos.

US-French Military Currency WWII

US-French franc WWII currency

The “flag ticket” franc (French: Billet drapeau

was a currency issued by the United States for use in Allied-occupied France in the wake of the Battle of Normandy. With the swift take-over of sovereignty by General Charles de Gaulle, who considered the US occupation franc as “counterfeit money”, the currency rapidly faded out of use in favour of the pre-war French franc. First Series-Supplemental French Franc Currency. Second Series-Provisional French Franc Currency.
