The Government today announced that Australia will adopt a new effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on all circulating and collector coins.
The new effigy of The Queen will be only the sixth to feature on Australia’s coins since Her Majesty’s accession to the throne in 1952.
The iconic eternal flame at the Australian War Memorial will now circulate in currency with coloured $2 coins released by the Royal Australian Mint ahead of Anzac Day.
The Royal Australian Mint honours and pays tribute to Stuart Devlin AO, who passed away peacefully on 12 April 2018 at the age of 86. Devlin is the designer of Australia’s circulating coins and regarded as one of the most creative and influential goldsmith and silversmiths of his time.
As the supplier of Australia’s circulating coinage, the Royal Australian Mint has a longstanding connection to Devlin, who designed Australia’s decimal currency released in 1966.
The Mint will be touring the country from May - November 2018. On the first leg of the 2018 Roadshow we will be visiting to Melbourne and Tasmania to bring our 2018 Mintmark Collection - Ratbags and Rascals: Australia’s Convict Era 1788 -1868 which acknowledges the contribution of the convicts to Australia’s history, heritage and folklore.
