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: Aboriginal Art Theme by 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.

Malangi represented Australia at the São Paulo Art Biennial in 1983.

He contributed ten hollow logs for the Aboriginal Memorial at the National Gallery of Australia in 1988.

He travelled to New York in 1988 as part of the Dreamings exhibition of Aboriginal art.

In July 2004 an exhibition opened of David Malangi’s work at the National Gallery of Australia called No Ordinary Place.

In Indigenous culture from Australia a person’s name is not spoken for months or years after their death depending on the cultural practices of their clan or language group.

During that time they are referred to by another name. Malangi’s other name is Daymirringu. This extra name is sometimes used, but he was commonly known as David Malangi.
