Australia’s announcement to remove the image of the British Queen from currency notes
Sydney: (Web Desk) Australia has announced the removal of symbols of the British monarchy, including the image of the Queen, from its currency notes.
According to a foreign news agency report, the Central Bank of Australia said that the image of indigenous Australian culture will be printed in place of former Queen Elizabeth II on the $5 currency note.
The Reserve Bank of Australia says it will consult with its country’s indigenous peoples about the new note design to prioritize the culture and history of Australians.
It should be remembered that on the occasion of the death of Queen Elizabeth II on September 8 of last year, official mourning was announced in Australia, but some Australian indigenous organizations protested against the destructive effects of the British neo-colonial era of the monarchy. Abolition was demanded.
