2001 Australian 50c Coin - Centenary of Federation - Western Australia - Uncirculated from Security Roll
- Issued to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Federation
- Struck by the Royal Australian Mint - Australian legal tender
- One of the lowest-mintage circulating Australian 50c coins ever issued!
- Hard to find in change in strictly Uncirculated condition, as here
This striking, commemorative coin was released as part of the Centenary of Federation 50c series. Comprising ten coins in total, the series is highly sought-after by decimal collectors, as it features Australia's lowest-mintage circulating 50c types!
The Federation 50c series was struck to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Australian nationhood. It included nine coins honouring a separate state or territory, plus a tenth bearing the Australian Coat of Arms. Issued to commemorate Western Australia, this coin features the WA Coat of Arms upon its reverse. Crucially, just 2.4 million were struck, compared to an annual average mintage of 20.61 million 50c coins from 1966-2016! It's little wonder that this coin is so hard to find in change!
The 2001 Western Australia 50c is a unique, one-year-only legal tender type, so it's crucial for a complete collection. Now 20 years post-release, it's difficult to find 'in the wild' in any grade - let alone in pristine, Uncirculated condition!
Each coin has been removed from a Mayne Logistics Security Roll and will be supplied in a brand new 2x2 SAFLIP.
Each coin may have marks/dents/scratches as a result of the minting and rolling process.
