The Profile of Her Majesty


It's evolved. In the 1984 $1 coin on the left we see the profile that's been used on all coins and stamps since her coronation in 1953. Four years later, on the 10c coin issued in 1989, she's aged gracefully. And again, by 2004, in the 20c coin on the right.

G,

If you remember, would you please bring back some Aussie currency. I have a request from an office mate whose 2 boys collect currency.

Wonderful illustration.

Thanks,

Dogwood

Oh, several earlier versions of Her Majesty on coins before 1984!
