Medals that were purchased to be awarded to knights and ladies that were once valued at $ 135,000 are now worthless, according to Governor Bureau

Then Prime Minister Tony Abbott reintroduced the honor of knights and ladies to the Order of Australia in 2014

M Abbott also bestowed the knight on Prince Philip in a largely ridiculed move

In 2015, just seven weeks after ousting M Abbott from Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull dropped out of program

« Knights and Ladies are really anachronistic titles, they are obsolete, not appropriate in 2015 in Australia, » said M Turnbull at the time

In Monday’s Senate Estimates, it was revealed that four waist badges valued at $ 20,000 each and a neck badge worth $ 15,000 were among the items that had been written off

« There are no more Knights and Ladies in the Order of Australia, these badges have no value, » said Secretary to the Governor General Paul Singer

« No, there is no sword or armor, senator, you will be happy to know But there are several ‘accessories’ as part of this set for knights and ladies a number of badges that a knight could receive, « said M Singer

Acting Chief Financial Officer of the Secretary’s Office Jason Chow said the medals had not been destroyed and instead were kept in the Wearable and Attractive Item Register
