The Type II two cent was issued from 1985 up until the end of the two cent series in 1991. It featured the new Raphael
Maklouf portrait of her majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse, with
Stuart Devlin's iconic frilled neck lizard design on the reverse. Devlin's
initials (SD) can be found underneath the body of the lizard (see example below). The series was struck exclusively at the
Royal Australian mint in a bronze alloy except in 1991 where
an additional silver
was issued as part of the Masterpieces in Silver set.
