Bookmark “War Savings Certificates” in ex cond. Both sides have printed information about the benefits of buying war savings certificates.


In the early days of WW2 the Australian Treasury created a plan for raising money to pay for the war effort by encouraging Australians to “invest in victory” by purchasing war savings certificates. The issuing of these certificates enabled the government to borrow money from the Australian people. Certificates bought during the war were expected to mature from 16 shillings to £1 in seven years. By 1942 the sale of war savings certificates was a major source of revenue for the government. Australians were encouraged to invest during victory loan drives.
