Since assuming the throne in 1952, Queen Elizabeth II has been the face of
numismatics. Her portrait has appeared on more coins than any other individual who ever lived. In 1971, the first year of currency decimalization, her effigy adorned over 5 billion coins in Great Britain alone. That’s one year, and one country. She has graced coins throughout the British Commonwealth, from Australia to Canada, South Africa to St. Kitts—and this has happened for over 70 years. Hers is arguably the most recognized face in the world.
