As unbelievable as it may sound - but they actually existed - real postage stamps whose face value is not in money in the respective national currency, but in rice was specified. This is what happened in the former North Vietnam in the years 1953-1955. You have to know that "unshelled" rice was the most important food for the population in North Vietnam at the time and was therefore the basis for calculating all public expenditure and income for several years. Against this background, the currency of the official stamps was changed to "rice currency".
