The fascinating world of Military Payment Certificates offers numerous ways to collect and plenty of challenges along the way. The regular issue (extended) set consists of 15 Series and 102 Certificates. This includes the Series 691 and 701 "unissued" notes which are not found in the MPC regular issue short set. Military Payment Certificates are unique in that they are printed using lithography as opposed to the intaglio method seen in most other US Currency issues. The paper itself is a planchette paper containing colored discs imbedded in the paper at random. Numerous grade rarities exist in some of the earlier issues, even as regular issue non stars. The Series 611 contains, arguably, some of the most beautiful notes in all US Currency. Some of the most identifiable military vignettes (of the Vietnam era) can be found in the popularly collected Series 681 notes. MPC collecting offers spectacular vignettes, plenty of variety, challenges and fun.

Series 641 $5.00 Military Payment Certificate "Top Pop" PCGS 67 PPQ Super Gem New

Military Payment Certificates

Between September 1946 and mid 1973, there were 13 Issues of Military Payment Certificates, also known as MPC's. These Series begin with Series 461 and end with Series 692.  Military Payment Certificates were issued to our US military personnel stationed overseas.  Military Payment Certificates were used to control the black market and to kept U.S. cash from getting into the hands of the enemy. Very few Military Payment Certificates were saved, as soldiers were given just a few days notice before an old series became worthless and a new series came into effect. Thus, many of the G.I.'s who brought a few notes home as souvenirs became the first collectors of these exciting, history-making notes.

Jeff Awarded Best Military Collection

Jeff Awarded Best Military Collection

The Famous Stars & Stripes Collection-Four-time winner!!

Once again the choice was easy—Jeff won every single set in the MPC category. His complete collection was improved upon once again this year with several upgrades, as his weighted GPA rose from 64.48 this year to 65.80 out of a possible 67.832. Jeff’s set includes many “top pop” notes and some great rarities. While the competition was a little tougher this year as a couple of sets are beginning to challenge that of Mr. Smith’s, he continues to excel in adding to his impressive collection with more upgrades and it will be a challenge for any collector to catch up!

What are MPCs and why did the US Military issue MPCs?

Jeff Smith, President of Treasured Stocks in Pocatello, Idaho knows a great deal about building coin and currency collections. A military veteran of the US Navy, Smith recalls receiving his pay with Military Payment Certificates, fondly known as MPCs, and spending these MPCs at the base PX.

The United States military devised the MPC program immediately following WWII. In post war Europe, US dollars became very valuable due to the high inflation rates of local currencies. Hence, US servicemen stationed overseas could purchase high value items for relatively small numbers of US dollars. To overcome this problem and help stabilize foreign economies, MPCs were developed and used from the time immediately following World War II until the Vietnam War ended (1946-1973). In the opinion of many collectors, MPCs include some of the most beautiful currency notes the US has ever printed. They are paper money in cent denominations of 5, 10, 25 and 50 and dollar denominations of 1, 5, 10, and 20. The MPC program was at its peak during the Vietnam War, Jeff Smith said.

Understanding the history of each piece of currency or coin is an important value consideration. Jeff Smith knows that one great way to learn about history and military conflicts is through currency and certificates.

To create many currency collections is enormously challenging yet just as rewarding. One collection to consider is a Military Payment Certificate  (MPC) Fractional Collection which is a relatively easy  collection to put together and not that costly. The MPC Fractional notes are 5 cent, 10 cent, 25 cent, and 50 cent notes.  A complete MPC Fractional Set requires 52 notes from Series 461 through Series 692.
