Biography/History

The Commonwealth Government of Australia launched seven war loans during the war of 1914-1918. The Loans encouraged the population to purchase government war bonds, to be repaid with interest, and so assist the war effort. All the war loans were over-subscribed. The seventh war loan was opened on August 1st 1918 and was the last as the war ended in November 1918.
