The  latest effigy designed Jody Clark has been adapted for use on the Australian coinage from next year, 2019

How much are the Oswaldtralians going to pay us Brits for this?

I heard the news on the radio earlier this morning.  I googled but nothing to be found at that time.

I wonder if it will be the uncouped (different) portrait that some other countries/territories are using?

Is this the one you mean?





The effigy used in the UK, by Jody Clark.

Thatís the one, yes.  I think we established before that itís not just an uncoupled version of the same portrait, but a different portrait.

Uncoupled from what?

As soon as the original new effigy was released, I asked the Royal Mint on their Facebook page whether an uncouped version had been created for overseas territories. The Royal Mint declined to comment.

It is the one I thought, then.  At first glance it can look like sheís naked.  The line where her dress starts on the left could be mistaken for her collar bone.  Not so much the one on the right though.

I Agree. Who would want such a provocative picture of a 90 something year old

found this,
http://www.mygc.com.au/australian-coins-set-to-get-new-image-of-the-queen/

"The new effigy was designed by UK Royal Mint engraver Jody Clark and has been in use in the UK since 2015."

That last part is not true.
