In the countries Japan occupied during the Second World War, a special currency was issued denominated in the currency of the country before the occupation. In the case of Burma these Japanese Government headed notes were denominated in rupees. We offer examples of the 10 rupees issued for Burma (P16) The design was simple with a vignette of temples on the front and a panel of engraving on the back. Available here in F-VF.
When the Japanese invaded countries during World War 2 they introduced a new currency denominated according to the usual currency of the country but with the heading The Japanese Government. In the case of Malaya the notes produced were in dollars and were fairly simple affairs. These 5 dollars, issued during the occupation of Malaya have a simple illustration of breadfruit trees on the front and a design on the back.(PM6) Our examples grade AU.
