Put the Queen back on Australian banknotes



At the moment Her Majesty's head is on a $5 banknote ...
Whilst Her Majesty is still on the old banknotes, Queen Elizabeth, Queen of Australia, has been replaced on the new five dollar tactile notes with the images of Catherine Helen Spence (1825-1910) writer and of course feminist and an unbearded Henry Parkes (1815-1896) , politician and architect of Australian Federation.

... but soon she will be replaced by a feminist and a politician.
It seems that the federal government is not only not celebrating the time when the Queen becomes our longest reigning sovereign, but has actually overseen the removal of Her Majesty from our new banknotes!

Join the Australian Monarchist League campaign to have the Queen’s image put onto the new (tactile) note. In fact, as head of state Her Majesty’s image should be on all Australian banknotes.

Please write to the Prime Minister saying how disgusted you are that he has allowed this to be done. Details are:

Sadly this point may be moot owing to unfortunate recent events.
