Queen Elizabeth II Memorial Obverse 2023

In early 2023, coin collectors will see a period of transition, with coins released featuring either the 2023 Jody Clark Commonwealth Effigy or the 2023 Queen Elizabeth II Memorial Obverse.

To aid collectors, the obverse featured on each release will be included in the release posts on the Mint's Facebook page, website and newsletters.
