2001 Centenary of Federation 50c - Commonwealth of Australia

Features the Commonwealth of Australia Coat of Arms.  The centre of the shield includes symbols of Australia’s six states and the border of the shield symbolises federation. The shield is held up by the native Australian animals the kangaroo and the emu, which were chosen to symbolise a nation moving forward, based on the fact that neither animal can move backwards easily. A seven-point Commonwealth Star sits above the shield. Six of the star’s points represent the Australian states and the seventh point represents the territories. A wreath sits under the Commonwealth Star. Australia’s floral emblem, the golden wattle, frames the shield and the kangaroo and emu and, at the bottom of the shield, is a scroll containing the word ‘Australia’.
