This coin forms part of the Centenary of Federation 2001 State Tribute Series of six Fine Silver (.999) coloured coins issued by The Perth Mint in 2001 in a capsule in a special case.
This special set of Holey Dollar coins and Dump medallions was released as a series which pays tribute to the six States that form the federated Commonwealth of Australia. Each Centenary of Federation holey Dollar coin portrays the official badges of each Australian State and the Northern Territory, with one of the state badges highlighted in colour. The corresponding Dump medallions depict each of the States' floral emblems in colour. Each medallion has the shape of the seven-pointed Federation star.
This interlocking coin and medal pair was issued at the ANDA Coin show in Perth as part of a six coin/medal Holey Dollar State Tribute series. Unlike the standard non-coloured release, the 7-pointed star-shaped centrepiece (or dump) is a medallic issue - it was not given a legal tender value. The reverse design of the dump depicts a full-colour image of Queensland's floral emblem - the Cooktown Orchid.
This was the certificate issued with each six coin set.
