Collectible Items: Soekarno - Hatta Money

I receive payments from someone, but I can't use them because they're some of collectible items for me. They have sorted serial numbers (UCP632189-90) and the year of printing (2008, new and smell good). Accidently, I receive them at Soekarno - Hatta International Airport this morning (9/11).

Funny, eh? Do you believe it?

As you see, there is a picture of the Bali village and Barongan in the 1963 Sepuluh Rupiah Bank Indonesia's bank notes.

Now, the Bali island is the most popular tourism object in the world.

"Banana Money" Set (1942)

"De Japansche Regeering Betaalt Aan Toonder" in 10, 5, 1, 1/2 gulden and 10, 5, 1 cent.

Banana money is an informal term given to a type of currency issued by Imperial Japan during the Japanese occupation of Singapore, Malaya, North Borneo and Sarawak and Brunei, and was named as such because of the motifs of banana trees on 10 dollar banknotes. It was in widespread use within the occupied territories where the previous currency became a scarcity. The currency were referred to as "dollars" and "cents" like its predecessors, the Straits dollar and Malayan dollar.


Yes, I have banana money in my collection :)

De Javasche Bank "Wayang Orang Series"

I start to collecting bank notes (paper money) today. I am interesting at the drawing in it.

Above is the paper money of 10 Gulden in year 1937 by Javasche Bank (now Bank Indonesia) and circulated in Hindia Belanda. The drawing is about a couple of "Wayang Wong or Wayang Orang" from the Central Java region, Indonesia. The serial number is NJ 09787 and the location and date is "Batavia 28 September 1937". This bank note signed by President Dr. G. G. van Butiingha Wichers and Secretaris J.C. van Waveren.
