Why add this 3-piece set of 1939-1940 Japanese Dragon Military Currency Notes to your collection?

Coinage and currency minted for the sole purpose of payment to military forces is a practice that dates back to the ancient civilizations of Greece and Rome. It was even common for military leaders to travel with mobile Mints to produce the specially designed money. Marc Antony, a notable commander if the Roman Republic (first century BC), was known to have coinage struck for his troops which were dedicated to his Legions and praetorian cohorts. This remarkable set of Japanese notes is an impressive 20th century example of military issued currency. Military notes issued to the soldiers of the Imperial Japanese Army and Navy in the early 1900s were crude in design, simply replicating the standard yen embellished with large red text denoting that it was military currency, and any reference to the Bank of Japan and gold/silver redemption overprinted with thick red lines. This set of three notes was designed specifically for military use, issued by the Ministry of War of Japan during the Second World War in 1939-1940.

Distinctive Military Issue Designs

This set includes three beautifully detailed circulated notes with face values of 5-Yen, 10-Yen and 50 Sen. Imagery is dominated by dragons and Onagadori roosters, powerful symbols of good luck and fortune in Japanese culture.
