The Centenary Medal was an award created by the Australian Governmentin 2001.[3] It was established to commemorate the Centenary of Federation of Australia and to recognise "people who made a contribution to Australian society or government".[4]. It was also awarded to centenarians: Australian citizens born on or before 31 December 1901 who lived to celebrate the centenary of federation on 1 January 2001. Nominations were assessed by a panel chaired by Professor Geoffrey Blainey, a historian.[3]
The colours in the ribbon are crimson, which represents federation, and blue and gold for the beginning of the 21st Century. The seven gold and red lines signify the states' pathways to federation.[3] The bar and ribbon are the same so that a recipient can be identified as such.[3]
