    Does anyone know what will replace the face of Her Majesty on our Gold and Silver coins when her time is done?

    I can definitely tell you they will turn the new Monarchs head to face the opposite direction

    It will be an effigy of Chuck. Unless he abdicates and then it will be one of Bill.

    Next in line is Charles, so if he survives her maj then it’ll be him. And yes he will face left when it’s his turn.

    Yeah righto, that makes sense.
    Hopefully they will continue to make the face smaller like they have on the 2020 Kookaburra coins. Much better in my opinion.

    Yep it will be Chuck but rumour has it that he is going to take the name George for his "ruler name" as he has said that people look favourably on the Georges. That would make him George the One Too Many. They may or may not have him face the other way as both Edward VIII and George VI both faced in the same direction but you could always argue that there were extenuating circumstances for that decision. They cannot have him facing the front as the coins are too small for his ears.

    Covid-19 will likely end the British Monarchy permanently due to them having too many high maintenance fixed assets (palaces and horse buggies to trot past the Ascot members stand and storage and security for crowns and jewels for starters.) They can't go to a pawn shop or Cashies and sell a scepter or auction a couple of tiaras on ebay so they can free up some spending money to keep paying their Jims mowing contractor.

    Of course history won't record Covid-19 as the killer of the British Monarcy, it will be rightly attributed to pre-existing conditions exascerbated by old age and irrelevance.

    After the death of QEII and end of the British Monarchy there won't be anymore royalty or other humans on minted coins, they will all have the same design but different denominations and values.

    Obverse will be Visa and reverse will be Mastercard.

    I disagree,
    the monarchy have read the lay of the land and are now engaged in a massive PR campaign to preserve their power
    why do you think that there is some much media related to their charity work etc
    in addition the royal family support government international efforts and as such have tact support of the British government
    to remove them from their throne so to speak would require a massive public movement and some massive government action that ultimately would end up in courts if the royal family resist
    you need to remember that Her royal highness is the ultimate power in all commonwealth land and can do whatever she wants.
    Notwithstanding that the royal family in its entirety has seeded family in all levels of power and have many powerful followers who will fight to support them. This is one of the reasons they engage in military forces to extend their power to the military as well.
    Look at the Invictus game publicity in last 10 years, that is designed to shore up support for the royal family in the military
    Make no mistake, Lizzy is a good operator and her family has fallen into place well, they will not be going anywhere anytime soon
