January 1901
single plate No. 1 in new design De La Rue only printed one delivery of 2,409,840 stamps invoiced on 6 April 1897. The blue colour varies only slightly.

As there were ample quantities available of CA 2 1/d this new value was not issued until late in January 1901, thus becoming the first new stamp to be issued alter Federation. Stocks were sufficient until replaced by the kangaroo. It was not, subsequently, printed on any of the federation papers.
