On the 1st January 1901, the six British colonies in Australia came together in a Federation and the Commonwealth of Australia was born. To commemorate the centenary in 2001 the Perth Mint struck a bi-metal gold and silver coin that features a 99.99% pure gold seven pointed, star shaped centre piece symbolising each of the six states and the seventh point representing the territories.

The 99.9% pure silver border portrays the floral emblems for each state; Queensland - Cooktown Orchid, NSW - Waratah, Victoria - Pink Heath, Tasmania - Blue Gum, South Australia - Sturts Desert Pea, Western Australia - Kangaroo Paw and Northern Territory - Desert Rose.

The Perth Mint's traditional 'P' mintmark is included in the reverse design and the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II appears on th obverse. The coin is legal currency under the Australian Currency Regulations Act.
