In keeping with tradition, Elizabeth II faces right, her hair is brushed off her face and is rolled at the back of her head. Her hair is restrained by a laureate crown which is tied with ribbons at the back of her head. The Queen's shoulders are bare and the truncation follows the curve of the coin.This first coin portrait was used on coinage from 1953 until decimalisation in 1970.
