2001 Centenary of Federation 20c - Victoria

During 2000, as part of the Centenary of Federation celebrations, the Royal Australian Mint conducted a nation-wide competition to find a school student from each Australian State and self-governing Territory whose Centenary of Federation design was to appear on a nationally-circulated 20c coin.  Ryan Douglas Ladd and Mark Aaron Kennedy of Lara Lake Primary School was the Centenary of Federation Student Design winner for Victoria.

The coin design links to one of Melbourne's most historic moments; the first sitting of Parliament on 9 May 1901 in the Royal Exhibition Building.  The coin depicts the beauty of this building.  Surrounding the Building in the design are the bell-like flowers of Victoria's floral emblem, the Common Heath. 

Image provided is showing coin design.  Coin is in very good condition, ex circulation.  It is not unusual for coins to have marks.  If any questions, we are happy to provide a scan of the coin before purchase.
