After the Japanese seized the Philippines during WWII, they issued their own currency for use on the islands. But Filipino resistance fighters produced “Guerrilla Notes” to symbolize their cause. This crude emergency money was often printed using wooden blocks, vegetable dye and scrap paper because little else was available. The money was eagerly accepted because it symbolized the resistance, but anyone caught by the Japanese with Guerrilla Notes faced torture or death.In 1942, General MacArthur pledged he would return to the Philippines and he made good in 1944, thanks to the resistance fighters’ efforts. This affordable set of 4 different 1941-1944 Philippine Guerrilla Notes includes what is believed to be the only 25 Centavos in the entire series. Make the notes of the daring Filipino resistance fighters part of your collection today.
