Allied Military Currency

During World War II an alliance of 49 nations including the Soviet Union, China, France, Great Britain, the United States and others joined forces to help end the war. Most countries issued their own form of army currency in combat zones or occupied areas. Some currency was even issued under the authority of the Allies as a whole. Thus, Allied Military Currency (AMC) was born. AMC was really a forerunner of the U.S. Military Payment Certificates (MPC). For more complete information on AMC and MPC, I suggest the book "World War II Remembered" by Fred Schwan and Joe Boling, published by BNR Press.Check our Coins and Currency Books page for more information.
