2001: NSW - 3 Coin Unc. Set - Centenary of Federation
2001 Centenary of Federation: 3 Coin Uncirculated Set - NSW
Joseph Neve, a year 11 student from Bellingen High School, designed the 20c coin, part of a special set produced by the Royal Australian Mint to commemorate Australia's Centenary of Federation.
The coin designed by Joseph is a result of a national competition run by the Royal Australian Mint. School students were asked to represent on a coin what is special about their State or Territory. Approximately 1200 design entries were received from students from nearly 400 schools in New South Wales. Joseph's design features a skilfully hand-drawn Waratah (the NSW floral emblem) against a silhouetted map of New South Wales.
Joseph's 20c coin design, a 50c piece depicting the NSW Coat of Arms and a $1 coin that features the Centenary of Federation logo are combined in a Three-Coin Set unique to New South Wales. Innovative packaging ideal for displaying the coins holds the unclrculated $1., 50c and 20c pieces.
17,593 uncirculated coins were issued in 3 coin sets.
