Set in right-profile relief, this design was the fourth-generation image to feature on British coins and served as the fifth-generation design on Australian coins. The image was created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley and includes the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara on the Queen’s head.
The reverse side of the 2016 1/4 oz Australian Queen Elizabeth II 90th Birthday Coin features an image of St. Edward’s Crown. Obtained the crown in the 9th century and named for Edward the Confessor, England’s last Anglo-Saxon monarch, the crown is in just its second iteration.
