The pound was a currency issued by the Japanese occupiers of former British and Australian territories and colonies between 1942 and 1945. These included Kiribati, Nauru, New Guinea, the Solomon Islands and Tuvalu.

The currency consisted of banknotes marked with "O" of denominations ½, 1 and 10 shillings and 1 pound.[1]
