Self-Published in 1983, 324 Pages, Black and White, Softcover

The definitive reference book on the banknotes used in Australia between 1913 and the present day.

Michael Vort-Ronald is without peer when it comes to researching and writing about Australian banknotes.

His passion for this area of our numismatic history has seen him unearth a huge amount of information on the background of all of Australia's banknotes, from the time before Federation to the present day.

His first book was on the banknotes used in Australia between 1913 and 1966 - our "Commonwealth" or pre-decimal period.

This definitive book on the history of Australian paper money covers:

* Background to the introduction of our very first Commonwealth currency in 1913

* Information on each of the designers of our pre-decimal notes;

* Extensive information on the different printing processes used;

* Brief biographical notes on each of Australia's note signatories;

* Information on specimen and star replacement notes;

* Highly detailed information on each and every signature and design variety in the Commonwealth note series; as well as

* Statistics on the number of pre-decimal notes still on issue throughout Australia.

If you collect, or are intending to collect Australian currency notes issued between 1913 and 1966, you simply must get a copy of this book.

Not only does it make for great reading, it contains an absolute panorama of information that'll support and assist you in your collecting decisions - it's a must buy.
