Comments

Now introduced into circulation by the RAM is this aluminium-bronze $2 coin. Updated with the Jody Clark 6th Effigy.

This Aluminium-bronze NCLT Coin was also issued by the RAM as part of a six coin set to commemorate the six different effigies of Queen Elizabeth II used on Australian coinage. The $2 coin in the set displayed the 6th effigy by Jody Clark and is being introduced on some Australian coins from 2019 and all from 2020



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.
