« dinner with the gibsons | Main | japanese peso? »


[Update 10:02 a.m.] Thanks to those of you who suggested more info about the Japanese peso I had displayed in yesterday's Blatherings. It seems that the Japanese printed a peso currency when they were occupying the Phillipines during WWII. From our friend Andrew:

"The official currency of the Philippines is the 'Peso'. During World War II, the Japanese invaded the Philippines and occupied it from 1941 to 1945, installed a puppet republic, and issued currency in various denominations of centavos and pesos.

Here's a picture of various bills from someone's currency collection:
