Agreed, yes - the circulating coin will have the more recent portrait.


I guess a second page will need to be created, for that 5th portrait coin.

That is for the individual coin.

Your link is for the set coin, which has the 2nd portrait in use in 1971 but is dated 2021.

I put in a request to Radrick007 (Referee for UK) to update the 2nd portrait to non-circulating. The 5th portrait which was released today was announced as also not being for circulation...
