This book seems to be something new to me. Have you had it in The E-Sylum? There is also another book with a similar title about Australia in the same area of this website.
I'm not sure if these titles are new - with an end date of 2001 they were probably published a few years ago. Can anyone fill us in? Are they part of a larger series of books covering the pre-1901 period as well? -Editor

About the Australian currency book:
The history of the evolution of Australian currency notes since Federation is a fascinating one. With the foreword written by by Ian Macfarlane, Governor of the Reserve Bank of Australia from 1996-2006, this volume brings an international perspective and significant new information to the History of Australian Currency. The official note issue begins with the superscribed series printed by the Government before World War I, and ends with today's polymer notes.
This limited edition leather-bound book with slipcase has previously unpublished banknote images and information sourced from the Reserve Bank of Australia Archives, leading collectors, dealers, historians, mesuems, and the Dauer Collection.
With the collaboration of the Reserve Bank, this 352 page full-colour tome extensively covers Pre-Federation 1851 to 1900, Federation notes from 1901 to 2001, military issues of both World Wars and Vietnam, and 20th century shinplasters.
