2001 Australian 50c Coin - Centenary of Federation - VICTORIA - Uncirculated from Security Roll
- Issued to celebrate the 100 years since Australia's Federation
- Struck by the Royal Australian Mint - Australian legal tender
- A unique, one-year-only type, crucial for a complete collection
- Mintage of just 2.8 million - tiny for a circulating coin!
- Impossible to find in change in strictly Uncirculated condition, as here
Issued in 2001, the Victoria 50c coin was released as part of the Centenary of Federation 50c series. Australia had achieved Federation 100 years prior, in 1901, and it was a milestone worth celebrating. Comprising ten coins, the series is a crucial element of Australian decimal collecting. Why? Because it features Australia's lowest-mintage circulating 50c types!
The Federation 50c series included nine coins that each honoured a separate state or territory, along with a tenth that featured the Australian Coat of Arms. This eye-catching coin celebrates the state of Victoria, and features the state's Coat of Arms. It is an incredibly low-mintage issue - just 2.8 million coins were struck!
A unique, one-year-only legal tender type, the 2001 Victoria 50c is a must-have for a complete decimal collection. Now 17 years post-release, it's very hard to find in change in any grade - and impossible in Uncirculated condition!
Each coin has been removed from a Brinks 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.
