New effigy of Her Majesty the Queen


For only the fourth time since the Coronation of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the obverse of legal tender Australian coins displays a new effigy of Her Majesty.

The Royal Australian Mint began featuring the new portrait by Ian Rank-Broadley on selected collector coins during 1998, and later this year will see the first-time release of the new effigy on general circulation coins.
