Japanese Occupation Money

Issued by the Japanese Government to replace legitimate currency in captured countries or territories. Occupation Money was issued in all the regular denominations of the currency it replaced. The One Shilling note is typical of occupation money used in captured parts of Papuan New guinea, and would have been used in Australia, had the Japanese captured that country. The Five Gulden note is typical of the occupation money used in the Indonesian Islands and Dutch New Guinea (now Indonesia.) (Examples from the Shaddox "Short Snorter")

1 Shilling

5 Gulden
