On the 2nd March, the Royal Mint unveiled the fifth portrait of the Queen which would be used on British coinage from that day on, thus creating a situation in which two effigies of the Queen would appear in one year. Aside from the new portraits, the second series will also include the new reverse design for the £2 denomination which sees the return of “Britannia” to circulation coinage.

4th Portrait: Ian Rank-Broadley, 1998 – 2015

The fourth definitive coinage portrait was introduced in 1998, and was created by Surrey-born sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS. His design was strong and took many months to complete, but Ian Rank-Broadley felt, “It was essential to the integrity of the project for the portrait to be a recognizable one, and not over-idealized.”

5th Portrait: Jody Clark, 2015 – 2022

Jody Clark is a member of The Royal Mint’s team of talented designers and engravers. Since embarking on his career at The Royal Mint, Jody has worked on some notable projects such as the medals struck to celebrate the 2014 Ryder Cup and Nato Summit. His celebrated contemporary interpretation of the iconic Britannia adorned the coin’s 2014 collection. Jody’s portrait of the Queen has a sense of the monarch’s warmth, with a hint of a smile, reflecting the modern queen we see today.
