The Sarawak Government Treasury - Emergency Issues

This is a rare piece of 10 Cents note printed for "The Government of Sarawak" with a date of 6.9.1945 by the printer in manuscript. It is learnt that a series of 1 Cent, 5 Cents and 10 Cents of these Sarawak notes were planned to be printed and issued after the Pacific War when the British returned to the State of Sarawak. However, the plan was terminated and resulted these notes never appear in circulation.

10 Cents of Sarawak Note that never been issued.

Note that this series of 1 Cent, 5 Cents and 10 Cents notes are all inscribed with "For the Government of Sarawak" in stead of "Treasurer of Sarawak" which appeared on all the Sarawak currency issued up to 1941.
