Centenary of Gold Discovery & Representative Gov.

Designed and Engraved, FD. Manley.

32,023,260 of each

No Watermark

The representative government stamp celebrated the separation of the Colony of Victoria from the Colony of NSW. It was not, at that time, responsible government. The dual design is nebulous and rather silly.

The medallions feature E.H. Hargraves pioneer in gold discovery, and C.J. Latrobe, 1st Governor of Victoria.
