2019 Mint Set - Jody Clark Portrait 6-coin Unc (Orange Folder)
2019 marks start of the transition of Australian coins being produced with the new effigy designed by Jody Clark. This transition period will be completed by 2020. The new effigy is only the sixth coin portrait to have been created during the Queen's reign.
The new effigy marks over 100 years since a coin designer has made a definitive coinage portrait. The introduction of a new effigy is largely symbolic and is in keeping with the tradition of periodically updating Her Majesty’s image on Commonwealth coinage.
The effigy was designed by Jody Clark; an engraver for the Royal Mint located in Wales, UK. Jody Clark’s original effigy was chosen through a closed competition commissioned by the Royal Mint Advisory Committee in 2015.
The first in a suite produced by the Royal Australian Mint to mark the progression of effigies of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on Australian coins.
Each coin's obverse features the new effigy of Her Majesty designed by Jody Clark.
Issued as Australian legal tender, the uncirculated aluminium bronze / cupro nickel coins are presented within an informative pack.
