I just searched for the specific email and The Royal Mint's legal counsel wrote: "This is primarily for public recognition and security reasons".

The Jody Clark portrait was in 2020 used on the obverse of a collectors coin of Tokelau. Recently a collectors coin of Alderney was issued depicting the portrait. These issuers can now be added to the list of issuers that have introduced a Jody Clark portrait on their coinage (UK, Isle of Man, Saint Helena, Australia, Tokelau, Ascension Island, Alderney). Tuvalu and Alderney have also been added to the relevant post in the recent portraits topic.

Excellent work, eurocoin. This will all help andyg, when he eventually expands his gallery topic about the portraits of QEII.



It is interesting that Commonwealth countries that are not Commonwealth realms also sometimes use a portrait of the Queen on their collector coins.






Zambia.






Malawi.






Uganda.

The Pitcairn Islands will be the next issuer to introduce the Jody Clark portrait on their coins.

The Pitcairn Islands issue only collector coins. The islanders use New Zealand coinage and currency.

First use of the Jody Clark portrait on a coin of the East Caribbean States:

So far, the Commonwealth version of the Jody Clark portrait appears to have been used at least once by the following mints, first year of use in brackets:

Tower Mint (2017)
B.H. Mayer Mint (2017)
Perth Mint (2019)
Royal Australian Mint (2019)
The Commonwealth Mint (2021)

The Royal Mint itself appears to have so far not minted a single coin with that version of the portrait on it. It has only minted the UK version of the portrait on UK coins since 2015.

First use of the Jody Clark portrait on a coin of the Cayman Islands. Remarkably it is the version of the portrait that is reserved for exclusive use on the coins of the UK. The obverse of the coin depicts the coat of arms of the Cayman Islands. It was minted by the Scottsdale Mint.
