Mendel/Stahl Signature

With Australian currency prohibited inside the camps inmates of Camp 7 undertook a sophisticated production of banknotes with declared 'legal Australian Currency' values. The notes were dated 1st March 1941 and issued at the Hay Internment Camp No. 7 for use by inmates mainly for purchases from the camp canteen. They were designed to a very high standard by Austrian artist George Teltscher whose previous work had appeared on Austrian coins.

The notes cheekily include many hidden and humorous features that protest the unfair imprisonment of the camp internees. The notes were quickly deemed illegal by the Australian authorities and were withdrawn in September 1941.
