Comments

In 2001 there were many coins released into circulation by the RAM commemorating the Australian Centenary of Federation. A one dollar coin, Ten 50 cent coins and nine 20 cent coins.
Nine of the 50 cent coins depicted the coat of arms of each state and territory of Australia that were joined together in 1901 at Australia's Federation.
This 50 cent coin depicts the Coat of Arms of the Federated States of Australia as a whole and is the most common of the Federation 50 cent coins.
