Obverse

Third crowned portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II facing right, wearing the George IV State Diadem

NOTE:
From 1985 to 1991 the head of Queen Elizabeth II was a slightly smaller size.
From 1993 to 1997 the head on the Obverse was a slightly larger size.
The change over was made part way through 1992 so there are two versions in this year.
1997 has small varieties in design of the portrait.
