Comments

The Royal Australian Mint issued in 2001 a  Federation (1901 - 2001) Masterpieces in Silver Proof $5 Dollars, Five Coin Set with reverse designs paying tribute to Outstanding Personalities who contributed to the Federation of Australia.

This coin depicts  Sir George Reid, John Forrest and Sir John Quick who were among the pioneers of the Australian federation movement and played a very significant part in establishing the Commonwealth of Australia.
