15 International Banknotes That Show Queen Elizabeth’s Aging Process (Part 2)

Queen Elizabeth II has, of course, been pictured on British currency for much of her reign, but she has also appeared on the money of various British Commonwealth states and Crown dependencies. With such a long reign (61 years so far) and so many nations issuing money with her image on it over the years, there are enough banknote portraits to construct a sort of aging timeline for the Queen.

The age given below for each portrait is her age when the picture was made, which is not always the same as the year the banknote was issued. Here is Lilibet through the years, on money.

6. AUSTRALIA, 1 DOLLAR, AGE 38

Not long after this portrait was taken, she would meet The Beatles.

7. ST. HELENA, 5 POUNDS, AGE 40

Perfecting the art of looking casual while wearing bling.

8. ISLE OF MAN, 50 POUNDS, AGE 51

More bling for this portrait from her Silver Jubilee.

9. JERSEY, 1 POUND, AGE 52

Wisdom, experience, soulful eyes.

10. AUSTRALIA, 5 DOLLARS, AGE 58

The confidence to go casual.
