The ageing of Queen Elizabeth II as seen on banknotes

Queen Elizabeth II has been the queen of England for... ages it seems! And yes, most of the country (or for that matter the world) has never seen another monarch in Buckingham Palace. In 2014 Elizabeth will celebrate her 88th birthday and her 62nd as queen. She has also been on banknotes throughout the world for 79 years, first appearing as an 8-year old girl on a banknote from Canada. The site Mental_Floss has made a list of 15 "Elizabeth-banknotes" from all over the world which show her ageing through the years.

For a complete list of all 30 portraits used on various banknotes in the Commenwealth, I highly recommend this list compiled by PJ Symes.
