Gemeente Doetinchem, 10 cent
Municipality of Doetinchem (Province of Gelderland)
Issuing emergency money on 11 May 1940 was essential in Doetinchem. Immediately after the hostilities broke out on 10 May the municipality had to pay its civil servants an advance on their salaries thereby emptying their funds.
On the Saturday the Mayor informed the unemployed and those entitled to household allowance that due to lack of funds no regular payments could be made. Instead, stamped coupons were distributed. These were supplemented by printed emergency money a week later. The emergency money lost its value on 25 May 1940.
