160310-0047 - Pacific War Bond


Outside Showa 1940s Unknown

Pacific War Bond of 10 yen issued by the Imperial Government of Japan in 1942 (Showa 17), featuring Japanese WWII warplanes, a tank and a navy ship.

There were 21 releases. Release 2 through 7 all have the same so-called battle flags design. The 1st release and releases after the 7th show different designs.

In the 1930s and 1940s, “voluntary” savings were so greatly encouraged to finance the Japanese war effort that by 1944 (Showa 19) Japanese households were saving an incredible 39.5% of disposable income.
