Released on 3rd September 2018 by the RAM in a coincard is this NCLT $1 coin which commemorates the use of Ian Rank-Broadley's portrait of the Queen used on Australian coins from 1998 to 2019. In Australia and the UK this was widely known as the "4th Portrait". In effect this appears to be a two headed coin because the IRB Obverse has been used on the Reverse of this coin.
Portraits of the Queen used on Australian coins are as follows....
1st Portrait - Mary Gillick - 1953 - 1965
2nd Portrait - Arnold Machin - 1966 -1984
3rd Portrait - Ralph David Makleof - 1985 - 1998
4th Portrait - Ian Rank-Broadley - 1998 - 2019
However there was another Queen Elizabeth portrait used on Australian coins. It was only used on one coin in the year 2000, that was the circulation 50 cent commemorating the Royal Visit of that year. It has a unique portrait done by Vladimir Gotwald which was actually the 5th portrait.
This is why the new effigy by Jody Clark as depicted on this coin to be used on Australian coins from 2019 is known as the 6th effigy (or 6th Portrait) in Australia.
However it should be noted that not all Australian 2019 dated coins will use the new Jody Clark 6th portrait. The Year of the Pig 2019 releases have been already issued with the previous Ian Rank-Broadly 4th portrait.
Also the 2019 Moon Landing UNC & Proof sets have been released with the 4th portrait. It remains to be seen when the 6th portrait will appear on a circulation coin. (It is now starting to appear on 2019 dated circulation coins as at July 2019)
The coin was also released in a general edition PNC by Australia Post. (7,000 Copies)
An overprinted version of the PNC was issued at the Sydney ANDA Money Expo in 2019 (500 Copies)
A Fine Silver (.999) Proof version of the coin was issued by the RAM in a capsule in a plush case and also in a limited edition PNC by Australia Post (See link)
