Australia 2001 Proof 20 Coin Set

Centenary Of Federation

The most important product released in Australia’s biggest commemorative coin program.

Demand for memorabilia was in a boom period leading up to the and during the Centenary of Federation, coins sets were particularly popular as they were officially produced by the Australian government.

All in all there were:

  • 10 different commemorative fifty cent coins;
  • 9 different commemorative twenty cent coins; and
  • 1 commemorative one dollar coin

issued in the Centenary of Federation commemorative coin series.

This was easily the biggest stimulus the Royal Australian Mint has given to Australian numismatics since the introduction of decimal currency.

This particular set included not only the Centenary of Federation 50¢ and $1 coins, but also one of each of the commemorative 20¢ and 50¢ coins issued for each state and territory in Australia.

Only 13, 000 of these sets were produced, and they easily sold out before the end of 2001.

Prices for the individual Uncirculated coins continue to make ever-higher prices, and this product is looking better value all the time.
