The reverse of $20 Federal Reserve Hawaii Notes contains an image of the White House. This design was introduced in 1928, replacing previous images that showed various forms of transportation. In each corner of the note, you will see its denomination, and printed in large-sized lettering across the center is the word Hawaii.


The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor resulted in the deaths of over 2400 Americans, causing President Roosevelt to declare it a date which will live in infamy. The emergency currency that was printed was a precautionary measure in the event that Japan took control of Hawaii. The first notes were printed on June 25, 1942. However, after the Allied victory, notes started getting recalled in April 1946. While most of these notes were destroyed, some have survived to this day thanks to service members, who held onto them as keepsakes.
