Rank-Broadley (1999-present)

The third portrait of Her Majesty to appear on Australian decimal coins was selected from the works of designers and engravers invited by the British Royal Mint in 1996. Among the three designs submitted for approval were portraits by Ian Rank-Broadley and Vladamir Gottwald. The Portrait by Rank-Broadley was chosen and appeared on United Kingdom coinage in 1998. Following earlier conventions, Australia adopted this effigy on some collector coins in 1998 and generally from 1999.
