In 2014 the Royal Mint chose Jody's design as the new reverse for the gold and silver Britannia bullion coins. Britannia also returns to the circulation coinage in 2015, on the reverse of the 2 pound coin, in a design created by Anthony Dufort. Given Britannia's current high profile and her popularity with a large segment of the British public, the profile of the artists associated with her portrayal is automatically raised, and we are likely to see more of Jody's work in the future.
