About the portrait.
During her long life, Elizabeth II was depicted on coins in different versions of her portrait – from a 25-year-old girl to a pro-grandmother, but in all portraits her majesty always looks from left to right.
When minting coins with a portrait of the Queen, the Commonwealth countries are not obliged to use the version of the portrait of the queen that the English Royal Mint chooses for coins circulating in the UK.
