The plaque commemorates the over subscription of the Commonwealth Peace Loan after World War One.

To finance the war the Commonwealth had a series of war loans, and then peace loans. All were over-subscribed.

Up to yesterday Mildura had subscribed £46,540 to the Peace Loan.  A letter from the Loan Committee declares that if the quota of £48,000 is subscribed by the 7th October Mildura will be entitled to Bronze Honor Tablet.
Mildura Cultivator (Vic. : 1888 - 1920), 4 October 1919.
