Two Banknotes of the Dutch East Indies-Issued During World War 2-Illustrated

Illustrated below are the obverse and reverse of two banknotes with values of a Half Gulden and 1 Gulden. The notes were printed in America in 1942 and dated 1943 by the American Bank Note Company (see detail). Although the Japanese had by 1942 occupied the Dutch East Indies (now Indonesia) the notes were printed on the orders of the Dutch Government in Exile for their return to Indonesia. The notes were known as NICA Gulden (Netherland Indies Civil Adminstration Gulden). The notes bear a portrait of Queen Wilhelma the 2nd the reigning monarch of Holland.
