With the Queen poised to become the longest reigning monarch in British history, in September. I wonder whether this event will mark the changing of her effigy on her medals?

I don't believe they will and my argument for this is based on the fact that the Golden Jubilee Medal (2002) has an older Elizabeth as the effigy, but the Iraq war medal (2003) for example has a young Elizabeth effigy. So I would imagine that the effigy will stay the same? HOWEVER Victoria did change the effigy on her medals for an older looking her, an example being the Boer War medal (1899-1901). So I may well be talking through my hat..........

The New Ebola medal, certainly has an older Effigy on it. Could it be that they'll begin issuing all medals with this effigy from now one? Will LSGC medals be issued with this effigy in future?

Thanks.

 

I thought it would be nice of they did, especially if only a few were issued before we had a new monarch (from a collecting point of view anyway).
