Description

1972 saw the advent of the Hutt River Province claiming itself as an independent Principality within Australia under its self elected Prince, Leonard George Casley, who styles himself as "Prince Leonard".    

These election money notes were handed out at the time of the Whitlam Governments election campaign in 1974 asking people to go against the claim for a independent sovereign state within our borders and to not support Prince Leonard or Lang Hancock.

Secession was on the agenda while Lang Hancock (the mining magnate) was making his fortune, but only the principality of Hutt River, ruled by Prince Leonard succeeded to a certain degree. 

A unique piece of Australiana looking at one mans attempt to split of from the Commonwealth.
