Small denomination coins were in short supply during WWI. Morocco issued postage size 50 Centimes, 1 Franc and 2 Francs cardboard notes as temporary substitutes for coins. Although Guinness World Records 2008 edition lists Romania 10 Bani 1917 note, measuring 34 mm x 45 mm (1 5/16" x 1 3/4"), as the world's smallest banknote, this 50 Centimes 1944 emergency issue, measuring 42mm x 31mm (1 11/16" x 1 1/4"), is smaller.
