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.

Alderney, 5 pounds (silver), 2014.



This depiction of the Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles, as part of the international "Princess to Monarch" series of coins, was the joint work of Jody Clark and fellow Royal Mint engraver Thomas Docherty.

The other projects that Jody Clark did for the Royal Mint were a medal for Lesotho, a design proposal for Azerbaijan and a modelling job for Costa Rica.

In 2017, a design by Jody Clark was introduced on the obverse of the circulating coins of Gibraltar and the Isle of Man. This variant of the Fifth Effigy of HM Queen Elizabeth II, that can be seen above, was specifically made for use on the coins of the British Overseas Territories, British Crown Dependencies and the countries of the Commonwealth.

Since 2016 Jody Clark has designed a series of silver and gold bullion coins featuring the Queen's Beasts. Every year one of the 10 Queen's Beasts is being featured on the coins. The Queen's Beasts are heraldic statues representing the genealogy of Queen Elizabeth II. On the above coin the Griffin of Edward III can be seen.
