The British penny is one of the few denominations to have featured all five of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s definitive coinage portraits. The first pennies to bear Queen Elizabeth II’s portrait were pre-decimalisation and were issued in 1953 with the monarch’s effigy by Mary Gillick. This Penny Portraits of Queen Elizabeth II Set brings together five pennies throughout the reign of Her Majesty, including the work of Mary Gillick, Arnold Machin RA, Raphael Maklouf, Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS and Jody Clark.
