A change in the portrait design on Australia’s sovereigns occurred in 1887 to celebrate Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee marking fifty years of her reign. The portrait was designed by Sir Joseph Edgar Boehm and shows a mature ‘Jubilee’ bust with a small imperial crown and veil. The reverse depicts Benedetto Pistrucci’s St George slaying the Dragon.
