This circulating Commemorative Coin was issued by the RAM in 2001 as part of a group of nine coins, one for each of the six States and three self governing Territories of Australia. They Commemorate the Federation of Australia that happened 100 years ago in 1901. The reverse design is by Year 7 student Stacy Jo-Ann Paine from Caroline Chisholm High School who was the winner of the Royal Australian Mint's student design competition for her state/territory. This was a national competition for primary and secondary school students to design a coin to represent their state or territory.

A similar set of 50 cent coins was also issued but with different reverses to the 20 cent coins.
