Allied Military Certificates - WWII


Recommended Posts

During World War II the Allies issued notes called Allied Military Certificates for use in the areas to be placed under military control. The notes were intended to provide currency control to reduce the risk of hyper-inflation and keep black marketing in check. Five types of AMCs were issued.


•Austria - denominated in schillings

•France - denominated in francs

•Germany - denominated in marks

•Italy - denominated in lire

•Japan - denominated in yen


Notes were printed by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing in the US, Japanese Ministry of Finance for Japan and some were printed in Russia. For some information on identifying the location of printing for notes for Germany check out this thread. CoinPeople Info on Germany AMC printing locations
