Catalog & market information for bank notes issued by Government of India
The British conquered Burma piecemeal over the course of three Anglo-Burmese Wars (1824 to 1826, 1852 to 1853, and 1885 to 1886). On 1 January 1886, the whole of Burma came under the rule of the British Raj as a province of India. From the late 1890s until the 1930s, the Government of India (GOI) issued large uniface notes denominated in rupees for use in the various provinces of British India, including Burma. These notes bear either the full name or code letter of the province city of issue. Notes for use in Burma bear the name Rangoon (capital of the province) or the initial R. Because Burma was a province of British India at this time, these notes (PA1 - PA8) are not included in this chapter. For more information on these notes, see India. A nationalist movement began to take shape in the early 20th century, culminating in several strikes and eventually armed rebellion. On 1 April 1937, Burma became a separately administered colony of Great Britain with Rangoon as its capital, but its financial affairs continued to be administered by the Indian government, as codified in The India and Burma (Burma Monetary Arrangements) Order, 1937.
