Who’s On the Money? is a unique journey through Australia’s history following European settlement and colonisation. It features federation and Australians at war. It also profiles great Australians, including women and Aboriginal people.
A fascinating feature is the list at the end of the book which shows Australians who were on the original decimal currency paper money, but who are not included on the more recent polymer money.
Chris Miles holds a Bachelor of Commerce degree, but soon after graduating he made the economically dubious but spiritually fulfilling decision to become a writer and not an accountant. Strangely, his first book is about money. His favourite banknote is the $100 note – it holds a mysterious allure for him, since he’s rarely had one in his possession.
Chris lives in Melbourne and as well as being a writer of fiction and non-fiction, he is also a freelance web designer and an editor for a medical organisation.
