A monument commemorates the Shire of Redcliffe fulfilling the Peace Loan quota in 1919.

To finance the war the Commonwealth had a series of war loans, and then peace loans. All were over-subscribed. This seemed to some to be further evidence of the inequality of sacrifice in the war -- those with money to spare could actually profit from the war, while others were suffering economic loss and decline.
