Definitely preferable to the UK version. I hope the Australians are paying a large fee for this and that I get my due cut as an Englishman.  >:(

“The transition to a new effigy on all Australian coinage will begin in 2019 and continue into 2020". Interesting.

That is both sides of the same $1 coin?  Interesting.  I like how they’re effectively commemorating the passing of the Ian Rank-Broadley portrait.

I prefer their new portrait to the UK one too.  It would have made a nice change to have it nicely rounded off like that instead of another harsh cut on the neck.

Sixth effigy?  In the UK we’ve only had five.  Australia got another one did they?  They’re surely not counting the one-off 2000 Royal visit one are they?

Has the texture of the Queen's dress been enhanced by the RAM to protect her modesty? It doesn't look like it does on the Manx coins.

Welcome on World of Coins Forum GCVO!
I was wondering about the same. It indeed seems as if it was modified.

Definitely different!  I can’t see Jody Clark’s initials on the Isle of Man version either.

Well, we will have to wait for images of the minted coins before we can draw such conclusion. Jody Clark's initials are not on that image but are included on the Manx coins.
