1988 Australia World Expo Bank notes
Continuing on with my stacking of different banks notes, I came across these interesting specimens the other day.
These are bank notes that were accepted as legal tender inside the Expo '88 site in Brisbane, Queensland. Expo '88 was held from April 30th to October 30th 1988 and showcased the best that Australia had at the time.
Presently they have no monetary value but have become highly collectible items. Hopefully one day they will form part of my retirement plans!
World Expo '88
Expo '88 was held in Brisbane, Australia during the Bicentennial celebrations of that same year. The theme of the Expo was "Leisure in the Age of Technology", and the mascot for the Expo was an Australian platypus named Expo Oz. It placed Brisbane on the world map and the boost from tourism achieved from the Expo helped propel the state of Queensland into the modern age!
