I just noticed that the three different sixpences issued in Brian's name (1993 BTTL, 2004 Vegas, 2005 QPR) all have different profile images of Brian, whereas I'd always assumed that it was only the text that changed.

See for yourself

maybe more work has gone into these than we thought...

I have two of them - they are rather nice. The BTTL and QPR were purchased from the concert.

I have seen the BTTL one on ebay at phenomenal prices...over-inflated even...but I wouldn't sell it.

Does anyone know if the Vegas one is ever for sale?

The Vegas one was for sale on QOL for quite a while ... I bought mine from that site. I think you can often-times still find them on ebay for a fairly reasonable price.

I have all 3.

The BTTL is still the one to have, being by the Royal Mint.

The Q+PR one was nice.

The WWRY one is just horrible, very cheap indeed.

Has the Queen had this many profile changes?!

She's had loads...

Does anyone know who made the others? the quality of the WWRY one is significantly below the other two.
