Have you ever looked at Australia’s money?
Who are those people on the banknotes and why are they there? And why is the Queen on all the coins and on the $5 note?
Each image on Australian currency, whether person, plant or creature, has been carefully chosen to represent and celebrate Australia.
Our money tells us our history, and points to the Australia that we hope to be.
Show me the money and I will show you Australia.
“The collaboration of Sue Lawson and Karen Tayleur has resulted in a superb information book… It includes the First Nations People’s methods of trade prior to the arrival of Europeans in this country… Overall, a superb production. Highly recommended.”
Patricia Halsall, Magpies Magazine
“Any young penny-pincher will love to dream over this book, so simply written and so colourful.”
