Portraits of change: The effigies of Queen Elizabeth II. It was the youthful laureate effigy by Mary Gillick that graced our pocket change in the early years of Queen Elizabeth II's reign, in a time when Canada's peacekeeping reputation was first forged. The second portrait, the tiara effigy by Arnold Machin, is the one that graced our coins when we adopted the maple leaf flag (1965); when we celebrated Canada's centennial (1967); and when we welcomed Olympic athletes to Montreal (1976).The stately diademed effigy by Dora de Pédery-Hunt-the first by a Canadian artist-reflected a refined sovereign, one who had grown and matured alongside Canada, even as the national map was redrawn to include Nunavut in 1999. The uncrowned effigy by Susanna Blunt is ultimately the final portrait. It is a more modern representation of a monarch who, in her own words, had been "a witness to this country for more than half its history since Confederation, " and whose commitment to service and to Canada never wavered.
