Very beautiful and unique play money set. I have seen 1911 amd 1919 sets so far; this is the first time I'm seeing 1922 set :) . Single British Indian Rupee play coins of various years are more common.

That's really cool! I wonder for what game these paper coins were printed for.

I guess these are just contemporary novelity items like the miniature US coins of past and present we see now. I don't think these coins were used as Monopoly play money as the game was commemrcially launched in late 1920s.
