The Duchy of Warsaw was created by the Treaty of Tilsit in 1807. By decree of the King of Saxony and Prince of Warsaw, Frederick Augustus, of December 1, 1810, paper money was introduced - cash tickets of the Duchy of Warsaw. These were in denominations of 1, 2 and 5 thalers. When exchanging paper money for metallic money, a commission of 2.22% of the value was charged. Therefore, box office tickets were not trusted by the population. Additionally, a maximum of half of the amount of taxes could be paid with paper money.

The graphic design referred to the circulating paper money issued in the Kingdom of Saxony at that time. These were one-sided rectangular prints characterized by a composition enclosed by an ornamental frame topped with the coat of arms of the Duchy at the top.

In 1812, the Duchy of Warsaw was occupied by Russian troops. When fleeing from Warsaw, the Government of the Duchy took with it paper money, which was burned in Krakow. In 1815, the Central Liquidation Commission was established to collect paper thalers from the population. Box office tickets were stamped on the reverse with an oblong stamp. However, they were never redeemed.
