2013 Australian Fifty Cent Coin - 100 Years of Commonwealth Stamps - Uncirculated and Carded.

Not struck for circulation, this coin was issued to mark the centenary of the first Commonwealth postage stamp issues in 1913.

Australia’s first national stamp issue had a troubled beginning. A decade after the federation of Australia's six colonies, the Postmaster-General’s Department sought designs for the young nation's first stamps, which would in time replace colonial and state stamp issues. After more than a year of submissions and political debate, the Kangaroo and Map postage stamps were finally released in 1913.

The reverse design depicts stylised Kangaroo and Map Penny Red Stamp with a standing kangaroo placed over a map of Australia which, in turn, is extruded over a representation of a postage stamp.

The coin is encapsulated on an official Royal Australian Mint card containing information about the history of Australian banknotes.
