Azad Hind Bank Paper Money

Posted on November 23, 2012 at 6:05 PM

There is no proof that the Azad Hind Government ever produced any banknotes. There is a rumor that the Germans printed banknotes for Bose about the same time they printed the stamps, but allegedly they were lost when the ship they were sent in was torpedoed on its way to Japan.

There are no known official Azad Hind Bank banknotes, but at the end of the war, in order to raise funds for Indian National Army veterans and other causes, a number of private commemorative banknotes were prepared bearing the image of Subhas Bose or other Indian patriots. One actually depicted Bose with Adolf Hitler. These banknotes were sold with the profits going to various charities.
