The Portraits of Queen Elizabeth II
|Date of Original Image:||Unknown (probably between 2010 and 2011)|
|Image:||The portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, Canada’s head of state, is an engraving by Jorge Peral, Vice-President, Design and Master Engraver with Canadian Bank Note Company Limited. It is based on a photograph taken by Ian Jones, especially commissioned by the Bank of Canada and replicated for the holographic image.(Information and portrait from the Bank of Canada.)|
|Continuing with the Bank of Canada's informal images of Her Majesty, the image on the $20 dollar note issued in 2012 was commissioned by the Bank of Canada and provided in co-operation with Buckingham Palace. Wearing her traditional pearls (usually worn in informal images) and a plain dress, it is a refined yet matronly image of The Queen. Her Majesty is also depicted as an image in the security feature on the front and back of the note (see below).
