100th Anniversary of Australian Coins


4th portrait of Queen Elizabeth II facing right wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara


Engraver: Ian Rank-Broadley

Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS is a British sculptor who has produced many acclaimed works, among which are several designs for British coinage.


Images of the four right facing English monarchs that have appeared on Australian Pre-Decimal coinage. From left to right, Queen Elizabeth II, George VI, George V, and Edward VII.


Engraver: Vladimir Gottwald

Vladimir Gottwald was a member of the Royal Australian Mint's Design and Engraving Section. His portrait, designed following the British Royal Mint's invitation for a new effigy in 1996, was among the three designs submitted to Her Majesty for approval. Although Rank-Broadley's design was eventually chosen, Gottwald's design was approved for a once only use to commemorate the Royal Visit in 2000.
