Story

Rich and ancient heritage

Although archaeologists date their occupation from around 50,000BC, it is probable that the First Nations Australians inhabited the continent long before that time. In the 1960’s, Australia’s First Nations people began to receive the appropriate recognition from the broader community. Taking the opportunity afforded by decriminalisation, it was at this time Australian currency was used to honour the First Nations population of Australia.
