1966 Australia One Dollar Note - AFS

This note is from the first year of production. No tears or pinholes but well circulated.

This note would suit a beginners collection as a filler to have this year.

Additional to this you have the nice semi solid serial number sequence of 111.

David Malangi (1927 – 27 June 1998) was an Indigenous Australian Yolngu artist from the Northern Territory. The Yolngu (or Yol?u) are an Indigenous Australian people inhabiting north-eastern Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory of Australia. Yolngu vfwvrally means “person” in the language spoken by the people. One of the most well known bark painters from Arnhem Land. The reproduction of one of his designs was produced on the Australian one dollar note in 1966. (originally without his knowledge - when he became aware of this, he was given financial compensation). The payment by the Reserve Bank of Australia to Malangi began issues of Aboriginal copyright in Australia. He was born at Mulanga, on the east bank of the Glyde River.
