In 1901, history was made when six British colonies united at Federation to form one country - Australia. 50 years later, the 1951 Federation Florin was struck to commemorate this tremendous milestone. With its bold reverse design and intriguing history, this coin is sought-after by collectors today. Downies is delighted to now offer it in Uncirculated condition - a must-have for the predecimal enthusiast.

The 1951 Federation Florin features a striking reverse motif by sculptor William Leslie Bowles. Bowles' pleasing design places a crown atop a crossed mace and sword, which in turn intersects within the centre of a Southern Cross. While selected by Treasury from a shortlist, this design was the source of much controversy upon release.

Bowles had used the version of the Southern Cross seen in the Victorian State Arms rather than the National Arms, a move not everybody was happy with. Despite this, the coin remained popular as a souvenir. Its modest mintage of two million disappeared from circulation within months.

Already a crucial acquisition, the 1951 Federation Florin is a compulsory component of your collection in Uncirculated condition. Do not miss this opportunity - click 'add to cart' today to secure your coin!
