This coin displays the 5th effigy by Vladimir Gottwald used only once previously on a year 2000 50 cent coin. (Links below to other coins in the set)

Coins in the set had Portrait/Effigies as follows :-

20 Cent - 3rd Portrait - Raphael David Makleouf
50 Cent - 4th Portrait - Ian Rank-Broadley

According to centuries-old tradition, Australia's coins bear an effigy of the reigning monarch on their obverse. Queen Elizabeth II is Australia's longest-serving monarch. Although new effigies are introduced rarely, there have been five previous effigies of the Queen on Australia's coins prior to the latest one by Jody Clark.

Mary Gillick (1953), Arnold Machin (1966), Raphael Makleouf (1985), Vladimir Gottwald (used once on the 50c Royal Visit coin in 2000), Ian Rank-Broadly (1998) and the latest Jody Clark effigy introduced in 2019.
