Maybe we should help her along and find the very first Aboriginal (identified or not) depicted on an Australian or State stamp, or Cinderella, Stamp Duty etc.
I have images from a few of the 1911 design competition that have Aboriginals as the theme of the essay entry.

This gets much worse.
In addition to the University posting it on their website ("Published on: 10 Jun 2021 10:58am"), here: https://www.utas.edu.au/alumni/news-and-publications/news-it ... jungurrayi
they have also sent it out in the June 2021 edition of the UTAS Alumni and Friends e-newsletter:
"This article featured in the monthly eNews Alumni and Friends, if you are a member of the University of Tasmania alumni community and would like to receive this publication, please email us at Alumni.Office@utas.edu.au".
This newsletter was emailed to thousands, if not tens of thousands of people.
Thanks to anonymous for the following confirmatory information. It was emailed to people on the Alumni and Friends list in early June 2021:
Royal Australian Mint wrote:The image on the Australian two dollar coin represents an archetype of an Aboriginal tribal elder, designed by Horst Hahne.
Numerous designers were invited to contribute designs for the two dollar coin based on a brief to include a representation of the head and shoulders of an Aboriginal Australian, the Southern Cross and Australian flora.
The selected design was inspired by an artwork by Ainslie Roberts and modified in line with coin production requirements. Roberts used some features of Gwoya Tjungurrayi, otherwise known as One Pound Jimmy, as inspiration when creating a portrait depicting a traditional Aboriginal tribal elder. The rest of the features were derived from Roberts’ imagination and visual memory developed after drawing thousands of images of Indigenous people.

MJ's pet wrote: ↑19 Aug 2021 18:222016: Nearly thirty years later, in around 2016? the Mint changed their story, saying it was an "archetype" an "inspired by" Jimmy. This is a subtle change but a change nevertheless. It is important to nail down when the RAM came up with this story: website address is: "Two Dollars". Royal Australian Mint. Australian Government. 8 January 2016. Remember, just because the Mint types something on their website does not make it true. Historians should always question their sources.
The important thing to note is the "inspired by" story is not supported by any evidence from the RAM. Not a shred.

Thank you for contacting us regarding this story. We have contacted the author for clarification. She has reported that she was not aware of your post and identification of Gwoja Tjungurrayi as the subject of the 1938 stamp.
The author saw the stamp reproduced in stamp collecting forums and on google images while searching for info about the 1950 stamp and others featuring Aboriginal subject matter.
She was the first to formally identify it in a peer-reviewed academic publication and wrote about it as a poster stamp and its connection to Walkabout.
Also, she reports that she took a photo of the stamp herself (which she used for her journal article here) but downloaded a clearer image of the stamp from google images for The Conversation story. Our apologies that this image appears to be your photograph, used without permission.
- We amend the wording in the story to say that the author is the first to identify Gwoya Tjungurrayi as the subject of the 1938 stamp in an academic publication.
- We replace the lead image with the author's photograph of the stamp.
- We add a line to the end of the story that reads: Update: after publication The Conversation was alerted that a 2010 blog post by Glen Stephens had previously identified Gwoya Tjungurrayi. The article has been reworded accordingly.
- We inform republishers of these changes.
Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention.
