Coins Getting a Newer, Older Queen's Head From Today

By Gary Cutlack on at

Our money will soon all change a bit again, thanks to the Queen having a new head design made to accommodate the fact that even massively rich and privileged people go a bit wrinkly after more than 50 years on the job.

The latest design will be the fifth version of the Queen's portrait to appear on our coinage since she successfully came through the live TV vote and was crowned winner of New Queen Live! in 1952, with production set to start today. [Royal Mint]
