Mary Gillick portrait

New coins showing the first portrait of Her Majesty were issued in 1953. They represented a fresh start following the Second World War, and announced a new Elizabethan era. The Queen looked youthful and optimistic and the portrait was used on the coins of the United Kingdom and the coinage of many Commonwealth countries.
