Australia, Bahamas, Belize, Bermuda, Cayman Islands, Eastern Caribbean, Fiji, Gibraltar, New Zealand, and Solomon Islands. Those are just some that I can think of.
I don't mind her on the Canadian currency she's the only recognisable person on the notes. I just wish they'd make her look more regal, she just looks boring without a crown or tiara, what's the point in having the monarchy if she isn't going to look regal? I say make her look like a queen and put her on all the Canadian notes.
LOL - I think you'd find the President of Fiji would object.
By default she appears on the currency of Nauru and Tuvalu as they both use the Australian dollar. However the Queen no longer appears on Australian notes - only coins. The last note she appeared on was the old $5 note - currently going out of circulation in favour of one featuring Sir Henry Parkes - one of the Australian founding fathers.

Quoting Bill142 (reply 8): So good ole Gough would be to your liking then?
Bill, my friend - what a wonderful idea. I couldn't have thought of a person more suitable myself.
Quoting DETA737 (reply 9): Interestingly enough although Fiji became a republic in 1987, they continued issuing banknotes with the queen's image well after at least until 2004 which always struck me as odd.
They still have a defaced British ensign as their flag - nothing the Fijians do surprises me.

DETA737, for your information, the people on the other banknotes are prime ministers. On the $5, Sir Wilfrid Laurier. On the $50, IIRC, Sir Robert Borden, and on the 100, IIRC, Sir John A. MacDonald. I'm not sure any more about the $1000, maybe it also has the Queen (like the $20 and like the $2 did before it was replaced by the coin).
