Scope and Contents note

This collection contains one Japanese Centavo, a bank note issued by the Japanese Military Authority during World War II, which was used to replace the local currency during the Japanese occupation of the Philippines. The one centavo note was one issue of what was commonly referred to as Japanese Invasion Money, or, officially, Southern Development Bank Notes. During World War II, the United States counterfeited Japanese Invasion Money in an attempt to destabilize local economies and demoralize the Japanese.
