One Dollar 2001 Centenary of Federation, Coin from Australia
CoinOne Dollar 2001 Centenary of Federation

This circulating commemorative one dollar coin marks the Centenary of Federation of Australia and incorporates the Centenary of Federation logo. It was designed and sculpted by Wojciech Pietranik.

In 2001, Australia released a series of coins to commemorate the Centenary of Federation. There were nine different designs for twenty cent coins and ten different designs for fifty 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, plus a common "Australia" fifty cent design. There was only one $1 coin though.

No regular (Mob of Roos) one dollar coins were released in 2001.

Coins issued in 2001 have now been in circulation for 19 years.

Obverse
Australia / One Dollar 2001 Centenary of Federation - obverse photo

Crowned mature head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right (effigy known as the "Fourth Portrait"). The Queen wears the "Girls of Great Britain and Ireland" diamond tiara, a wedding gift from Queen Mary (Her Majesty's grandmother) in 1947 - which she also has on the Machin and the Gottwald portraits.

In tiny letters below the head, the artist's initials IRB (for Ian Rank-Broadley).

Around the effigy is the monarch's legend and the date: ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA 2001.

Obverse Inscription ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA 2001
Reverse
Australia / One Dollar 2001 Centenary of Federation - reverse photo

The reverse features a ribbon arranged like a simplified map of Australia, and a Federation Star. Around above, CENTENARY OF FEDERATION; divided by the ribbon are the dates 1901 and 2001; around below, the value and denomination ONE DOLLAR.

On regular (circulation) coins the central design is raised; on proofs, it is printed in colour - the ribbon is blue and the Federation Star red.

Note: the 2001 mint report lists "Standard" $1; given that no 2001-dated Mob of Roos $1 coins were made, presumably "Standard" means this type.

There seems to be some confusion in the Krause entry for this coin (as of the 2018 edition), which implies that there were 6,781,200 regular circulation coins (named wrongly "Australian Centenary of Federation - Norfolk Island" and wrongly said to carry a B mint mark), and separately 27,905,000 "multicolour" circulation coins (actually, only proofs in sets were coloured).
It also lists 1,001,000 Mob of Roos coins dated 2001, but that is the mintage for the Centenary of Federation coin in 2000/2001.
