1969 Australia One Dollar Note - ARJ
This note has some minor creasing and folds.
Light soiling as well but edges and corners are good.
A great middle of the road grade from this period that still adds value and class to any collection.
Australian Indigenous people in Arnhem Land call themselves Yolngu. The Yolngu have a form of social organisation which divides all things into two groups called moieties. The two Yolngu moieties are Dhuwa and Yirritja. David Malangi belongs to the Dhuwa moiety. People of the same moiety cannot marry and certain members of moieties must be careful of close associations.

Obverse: Elizabeth II (Elizabeth Alexandra Mary; born 21 April 1926) is the queen regnant of sixteen independent sovereign states known informally as the Commonwealth realms: the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Jamaica, Barbados, the Bahamas, Grenada, Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, Tuvalu, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Belize, Antigua and Barbuda, and Saint Kitts and Nevis. She holds each crown separately and equally in a shared monarchy, as well as acting as Head of the Commonwealth, Supreme Governor of the Church of England, and Head of State of the Crown Dependencies, British overseas territories, the Realm of New Zealand and the external territories of Australia. As a constitutional monarch, she is politically neutral and by convention her role is largely ceremonial
Reverse: David Malangi (1927 – 27 June 1998) was an Indigenous Australian Yolngu artist from the Northern Territory. He was one of the most well known bark painters from Arnhem Land and a significant figure in contemporary Indigenous Australian art. The reproduction of one of his designs appeared 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.
