Daily digital news desk: Another step on the road to liberation from the monarchy! The image of Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain is removed from Australia’s notes. Instead, Australian coins will feature portraits of the country’s parliament and personalities. The government of that country made such a decision on Wednesday. But the design of that coin is not yet finalized.
Australia’s $5 note features the image of the former Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain. Rani passed away 5 months ago. Since then, the doubt began to arise that the currency of that country will have the image of Isabel II? Wednesday got the answer to that question. Charles III is sitting on the British throne after Elizabeth II. But the Australian banknote will not follow that tradition. The Australian government has said in writing that this time the image of Australia’s Parliament will be displayed on one side of the $5 note and the country’s culture and history on the other side.

But that’s not happening right now. Because the design is not finalized. In addition, a referendum should be held to change the image of the banknotes. Public opinion must be taken, only then will the new design appear on the Australian coin. Until this design is finalized, old bills can be used.
By the way, according to tradition, the official head of 12 Commonwealth countries, including Australia, is the King or Queen of Great Britain. After the death of Isabel II, Carlos III is currently the official head of the country. But since the queen’s death, there has been a demand to get rid of the monarchy within the country. But this statement is not new. At the beginning of 1999, a referendum was held in that country to demand the liberation of the monarchy. But the majority of the votes fell on Queen Elizabeth.
