       We love Notgeld banknotes...Because they are colorfull, funny and tell us a story from the history... But what is a Notgeld. Wikipedia says that Notgeld (German for "emergency money" or "necessity money") refers to money issued by an institution in a time of economic or political crisis. The issuing institution is usually one without official sanction from the central government. Notgeld was released even before Germany entered World War I. On July 31, 1914, three notes were issued by the Bürgliches Brauhaus GmbH of Bremen. In this gallery we would like to introduce you Notgeld papermoneys from our collections. The gallery will be updated regularly.
