One of the most significant events in the entire 20th century was the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. One of the lesser-known repercussions of this tragic event was the US government’s recall of all currency in the state of Hawaii. In its place, the government printed special Hawaii notes in several denominations that would be considered illegitimate currency in the event of a Japanese takeover. Now, 1934a $10 Federal Reserve Hawaii Notes are available to you online at Silver.com in Very Fine condition.

The emergency Hawaii notes consisted of paper currency in $1, $5, $10, and $20 denominations. The $10 note had the second lowest printing total with 10,424,000 notes issued. A very small number of special Star notes were also printed that today command high premiums among collectors. While these notes were being printed, the US government was slowly destroying its $200 million stockpile of regular currency from Hawaii. After the war, printing of standard currency resumed, and large numbers of emergency notes were recalled and destroyed.
