The obverse of 2019 Silver Australian Pig Coins features the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is depicted in this fourth-generation effigy in a design created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley. The design was originally conceived for the Royal Mint of England as the fourth-generation design and represents the fifth portrait of the Queen to feature on Australian coins.
