While it is not mandatory under Australian currency law to use the obverse design selected for British currency, it has evolved as a traditional practice rooted in our colonial past. Heading into its 19th year of circulation, Ian Rank-Broadley’s effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will equal the run of designer Arnold Machin OBE RA, his effigy of Her Majesty circulated from 1966-1984.

The first effigy of Her Majesty to appear on Australian coins was produced by Mary Gillick, her calm portrayal of Her Majesty in contrast to the prior styles of effigy in use won her support at the Royal Mint, with the effigy being introduced in 1953. See all four effigies of Her Majesty reproduced on the outer packaging of this set.
