I am trying to find out more about this money and its value I can send some pictures, I was gifted this and I have no idea about it at all

Hi Craig,

What you have there is mostly Japanese Occupation money. These notes were printed by the Japanese when they occupied the Philippine Islands during WWII. The note on the bottom left (green one) is from China/Taiwan and has a picture of Chiang Kai-Shek on it. He split with China and took lots of state treasures to Formosa Island - today we know it as Taiwan.

These notes are very common, they come into my shop almost daily. The value is typically 5 to 10 cents per note if they are in good condition without any holes - less if they are damaged or wrinkled.
