Each society defines its sense of self in many symbolic ways. Almost all use a national flag, a patriotic song, a revolutionary hero or mythical character that expresses a sense of their national identity.

This book celebrates the successful lives of ordinary Australians depicted on our currency - those whose lives have made a difference to the way we all see our country. Each has a unique story to tell. Rarely born into privilege, commonly born into hardship, these are Australian lives that reflect the ordinariness, yet promise, of all our lives.

They are the lives of men and women who have met the challenge of this wide brown land, they are the lives of dreamers, the schemers, those who chanced their luck and those who fought tooth and nail for their beliefs. They are the lives that make us all proud to be Australian - whatever our colour, creed, gender, education or birth.
