Kind of strange to see George VI on a 2020 coin (silver proof dollar). ;) But in that context it makes sense ...

Thanks! But as for what you call a "weird link", don't blame me. ;) The RCM uses the news channel "Presseportal" for media releases in German, see here for example:

https://www.presseportal.de/pm/132684/4694882 (1-Sep)
https://www.presseportal.de/pm/132684/4696026 (2-Sep)

Both stories have such Dropbox links ("Bilder der Umlaufmünze und der Sammlerprodukte finden Sie hier" and "Bilder der Münzen finden sich hier").
