Coin: Twenty Cents 2001 - Centenary of Federation - Norfolk Island
Description

In 2001, Australia released a series of coins to commemorate the Centenary of Federation. There were nine different designs for twenty cent coins which marked the occasion - one each for the six states (New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria and Western Australia), the two territories (Australian Capital Territory and Northern Territory) and for Norfolk Island.

The Royal Australian Mint held a national competition for primary and secondary school students to design a coin to represent their state or territory, the coins representing the vision and talent of Australia's youth.

Student Design winner for Norfolk Island was Megan Cummings of Norfolk Island Central School.

Her design tells the story of the Island's people, depicting the Norfolk Pine superimposed of a map of the island. The bird refers to the white terns seen on the island, the sun is a reflection of the beautiful weather, an anchor denotes HMS Sirius shipwrecked off the coast in 1790, fish represents marine life and a ship incorporated in the design refers to the supplies arriving to the island each month (or, by another version, Pitcairn Islanders who settled on Norfolk Island in 1856). The designer's initials MC are to the right of the base of the pine tree.

Around above: NORFOLK ISLAND 2001. Below the pine, the denomination 20 CENTS. Around below, 100 YEARS FEDERATION.
