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. To recover the cost of the war and fund soldier pensions the government launched 'Peace Loan' campaigns after the war. Peace loans were similar to the war loans where people loaned money to the government and received interest. All were over-subscribed.
