Thank you, eurocoin. I wonder why that is now the case. It was not so with previous portraits - unless we go back to 1935, when the dominions had to use the crowned effigy.

I just searched for the specific email and The Royal Mint's legal counsel wrote: "This is primarily for public recognition and security reasons".

The Jody Clark portrait was in 2020 used on the obverse of a collectors coin of Tokelau. Recently a collectors coin of Alderney was issued depicting the portrait. These issuers can now be added to the list of issuers that have introduced a Jody Clark portrait on their coinage (UK, Isle of Man, Saint Helena, Australia, Tokelau, Ascension Island, Alderney). Tuvalu and Alderney have also been added to the relevant post in the recent portraits topic.

Excellent work, eurocoin. This will all help andyg, when he eventually expands his gallery topic about the portraits of QEII.


It is interesting that Commonwealth countries that are not Commonwealth realms also sometimes use a portrait of the Queen on their collector coins.





Zambia.





Malawi.





Uganda.
