The 1951 Federation Florin features a striking reverse design by sculptor William Leslie Bowles. A crown rests atop a crossed mace and sword, intersecting within the centre of a Southern Cross. The design was selected by Treasury, but faced some controversy upon release.

Lamination peels are caused by impurities in the composition of the planchet when the coin is struck. Lamination peels are not considered particularly high end for the most part by error collectors however, they are a great introduction for error collecting and quite interesting to take a closer look at.

Note: the lamination peel is located on the right hand side of the letter "U" in the world "Australia" on the Reverse of the coin.
