We have heads facing each other on our coins but not facing the same way . One is a Kanga and the other an Emu.  Were Charles and Dianna on the same coin face as John has described?

Genuine Question here.
Does it still count as conjoined if the heads are on the reverse as with the 50c piece? The Obverse still has the queen on this coin.

The conjoined  heads of Charles and Diana ( also known as jugate) are just that ... i.e. conjoined heads, but thanks for the question. Others may have different ideas.
