    During the World War 2, Thai government had the banknote shortage problem because there was no delivered banknotes from Thomas de la Rue due to England was at war with Japan. The Thai government requested Japan to arrange the banknote printing. The Mitsui Bussan Kaisha Company was commissioned to act as an agent to contact the Japan Printing Bureau.

    The banknotes later were different from those of early batches because Japan was heavily attacked by the Allies towards the end of the war thus causing shortage in raw materials.

    The 5th series 50 Satang banknotes were announced on 16th April 1942.
