I love this new mint portrait! Her small smile is gorgeous and I love Britannia on the obverse. Do little girls often dress up as brittania for Halloween? They should - that helmet and shield rock.

I actually prefer this coin to the 97 version.

I think it looks like a young Queen rather than her current age.

Maybe that was the intention of the sculptor?

I thought it looked a bit cartoon-ish. I don't mean to bring a laugh, but more like the molded features you see in comic books or in the prosthetics that character actors use at amusement parks. I like it - she is very voung and hopeful as depicted.

Well, at least it is much better that others I've seen before...

Camilla needs to wear "better" undergarments when she poses for things like that. It's not like a sitting where it might take longer. It would make for a much more attractive picture, IMO.

The only members of the royal family that were photographed was The Queen, William and Camilla?

Damien Hirst’s first portrait of the Queen is sitting in a government archive after he secretly donated the work to the nation, The Telegraph can disclose.

The portrait – shown in public here for the first time – was given to the Government Art Collection last year after officials approach the controversial artist for a piece.

It is produced through the “spin” technique which helped make Hirst famous during his rise as a contemporary artist and fetch reach millions of pounds if sold at auction.

However until now it has not been displayed in a public gallery after the work was taken straight from Hirst’s studio into the collection.

Looking at the portraits, it seemed to me to be more or a caricature being done in "monarch mode" rather than an actual portrayal of HM.

Could be worse and his muse could have been a monarch's face as she fell asleep at the 2010 Olympics.
