Quote from: FosseWay on March 07, 2015, 02:34:30 PMIt's not a given that they will do so at all, or if they do, when. Australia changed to the IRB portrait a year later than the UK last time. Jersey never used the Maklouf portrait at all, continuing with Machin until 1997. There are numerous other examples of departures from the norm set in the UK.
Quote from: kena on March 08, 2015, 09:55:07 AMIt is not exactly true that no coins with the old portrait have entered into circulation since the Royal Mint did put 100 of the Royal Navy coins into circulation (same one that they are selling for £10).http://www.royalmint.com/aboutus/news/royal-navy-2-pound-coinKen
