QEII will still be on the currency long after she "pops her clogs", at least on the coinage, which tends to have a much longer shelf life than notes, the original 5 pence coin (1968-2008) was the same size, shape and weight as the old one shilling coin, and it was not uncommon to find a pre 1953 coin with George VI on it in your change.

1968-1989... the smaller 5ps were first minted in 1990.

The larger 5ps, 10ps, and 50ps look comically large to my eyes nowadays, even though they're what I grew up with, although the decimal half-penny still looks amazingly small!
