The state government of Michoacán only made a couple of issues and so it seems it was left to the municipalities to address the shortage of small change that resulted from hoarding and a breakdown in communications.

In March 1914 because of the lack of small change local businesses resorted to a series of typewritten notes, on paper of different colours, for 5c, 25c, 50c and $1, with the stamp of three of the principal casas comerciales. These were reissued every fortnightEl Diario, 6 March 1914.
