I'm curious to see which countries portray their coat of arms alongside a portrait of QEII. Above you can see a circulation coin from Guernsey and a collector coin from Zambia. Interestingly, some Commonwealth countries, such as Zambia, where QEII is not the head of state, often portray the Queen on their collector coins, in her capacity as Head of the Commonwealth, although they never do on their circulation coins. Below you see another example from Uganda. How many more countries have done this?

The collector coin from Nauru, below, is another example - it's just a trinket, since Nauru uses the Australian dollar.
