These small denomination notes were authorised for issue due to the short supply of metal after World War I with denominations below until a series of Exclusive Rights were brought to an end in 1922, with De Javasche Bank Act, and the bank's capital was increased by 50% to 9 million gulden which resulted in the bank being prohibited from issuing notes of less than 5 gulden, and all banknote designs were to be officially published. The same metal issue also arose later during World War 2 in the 1940's and some small denominations were issued again along with the of the ese forces who also introduced their own Gulden Occupation currency.
