I'll start it off with this one from Guatemala. Unlike many of its ilk, at 155 x 67 mm it's pretty much a full-sized note.

Here's a rare one.





Size 126x77mm approx.
Sadly it is only a modern repro - note "COPY" lower right.

It is a copy of a printers proof for a 5 shilling banknote, which the government was considering introducing in Britain in 1917. My sources state that there is only one original known, and it is worth a pile of cash.

In 1914 the British government withdrew gold sovereigns and half-sovereigns from general circulation and replaced them with paper money, to fund the war. I understand that they were considering doing the same with the higher-value silver coins, but in the end decided not to do so because of concern on how it would affect the economy. the original printers proof was a trial concept of what these lower value notes would have looked like.

If anyone has further info - I would love to hear it.

Originals this time ( I hope! ).

WW2 Fiji emergency paper money, to cope with lack of supply of coins from UK and large influx of US ( and other ) military personnel.






One penny ( 1d ). Size 80x51mm approx. I suspect that this might also be the smallest fractional note, as it is 1/240th of the basic monetary unit. Anyone have a smaller fraction?





110x61mm. Reverse is plain, just showing the underprint which is visible on obverse.





13x68mm. Again reverse is plain, only having the underprint.

I believe that these are the only types of emergency Fiji money from WW2 officially issued. I understand that there were unofficial paper tokens, such as theatre tickets and similar. If anyone has further info it would be appreciated.

Here's an assortment of WWII Japanese occupation script. The backs are rather generic and unremarkable. The largest bill measures 66 x 139 mm.

Condition of this specimen's not so great, but I've yet to run across another to upgrade it. 55 x 100 mm.

Lucky Cuss beat to the punch on the Hong Kong One Cent note, here is a selection of this time-honored tradition, the folks in Hong Kong just loved these little guys for paying utility bills by mail.

These ran from 1 cent up to 10 cents, KGV through QEII. I think they quit printing these around 1972, although I may be wrong about that. Some of these are getting rather expensive.

At $0.15 US to the HK $1, you could get a bunch of these for next to nothing. I recall passing on a brick of 1,000 of the KGVI notes for $75 some years back. Now a graded example in UNC 65 seems to be running $30, vs. $4 for raw UNC.

A Farmers Bank of China 50 cents of 1936 printed by De La Rue. This one's from the first year or so of my collecting.

The front images copy Qing Dynasty reproductions of 'classical' agricultural scenes from the Southern Song Dynasty book 'Yuzhi gengzhi tu' (Imperially Commissioned Illustrations of Agriculture and Sericulture)

Nice one, DavidUK.

One more from me -
Congo Democratic Republic
1 Centime
1997




The 1997 series also has 5, 10, 20 and 50 Centimes. Does anyone know why Congo DR were producing such low value notes in 1997?
