Book Description and Condition

Book description and condition

The story of how Australian currency notes have evolved since Federation is a fascinating one. The official note issue starts with the superscribed notes issued by the private banks before the First World War and ends with today's polymer notes. In the years between we have seen monarchs come and go, great men and women have their moments of glory, idyllic rural scenes disappear, pounds replaced by dollars and paper by polymer. Perhaps the most interesting parts of the book are the many detours into the

'informal' note issue. Examples include German marks issued by the Australian government in New Guinea in World War One, the informal currency used in the Hay Internment Camp in the Second World War, the various 'shinplasters' and 'calabashes' issued by merchants, and of course, the designs for the royal - the new unit proposed by the Menzies government in the 1960's to replace the pound. 315 x 235mm., pp. 352, black & white and colour plates throughout, Acknowledgements, bibliography. Hard cover, fully bound in Faux leather (without dust jacket as issued), gold blocked with pictorial cover and with slipcase. NEAR FINE.
