Colonial liquidity: making money in early NSW
How does a society function when there is a paucity of coins and many kinds of private notes in circulation? And what happens to that society when banks come to monopolise the production of money? Examining the State Library’s William Dixon numismatic collection, this talk presents a new history of the politics of money, banking and finance in colonial NSW, showing how conflicts over making money — between individuals, banks and government — shaped Australia’s settler history.

Dr Ben Huf, the 2020 Dr AM Hertzberg AO Fellow, will explore the politics of money and banking in colonial NSW.
