The ANZ Banking Museum collection follows the development of commerce and banking in Australia from early Indigenous trading through to current banking technology. The static exhibition includes examples of currency (money) from the colonies, bank issued notes and early Commonwealth currency through to decimal currency. Examples of Gold rush era equipment, early bank branch images, ledgers, accounting machines, passbooks, firearms, uniforms, and moneyboxes. The ANZ Group Archive collection covers key institutional records of the ANZ Banking Group and its predecessor banks (primarily Union Bank of Australia, Bank of Australasia, English Scottish and Australian Bank and several smaller predecessors and acquisitions such as Bank of Adelaide.) Very few customer records are held.
