How many Queen's?
« on: April 30, 2017, 10:24 »
Looking through my loose change got me thinking how many different profiles of Q. Elizabeth 2 are there in Australian pre-dec and modern coinage?
I don't know the answer, but I'm sure someone will know. Anybody want to start guessing?

1953 was the first year of QE2 coins in Australia. I can think of three portraits used over the years, but it may be more.

A big part of detecting is being in the right place - in your head and at the site.
