POLICIES ON HER MAJESTY'S COIN PORTRAITS

Gary Dunaier writes: "The article on Maundy coins in the
current E-Sylum prompts me to ask the following three
questions regarding the portrait of Her Majesty The Queen
on coinage:

1) Why do the Maundy coins continue to use the original
Mary Gillick portrait of the Queen, whereas circulating
coins are now on their fourth portrait?

2) Why do some countries continue to use the Raphael Maklouf
portrait, even though the current (Ian Rank-Broadley) design
is now in its 9th year?

3) How come Canada uses their own portrait of the Queen on
their coins Are they not obligated to use the design of the,
er, "home office?"  And are other countries permitted to
create their own unique portraits as well?"
