Issued in 2001, the Queensland 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 Queensland, and features the state's Coat of Arms. It is an incredibly low-mintage issue - just 2.3 million coins were struck!

A unique, one-year-only legal tender type, the 2001 Queensland 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 pristine Uncirculated condition!
