I have a hand engraved essay of Queen elizabeth II by Alvaro Lucas c1970. I was wondering if this image was used on any British/Commonwealth stamps or Banknote or where I might find this information from?

The engraving was too shallow for printing in England; thus was not used; Lucas was looking to get employed in England and he tried to impress the firm that engaged him for the engraving; unfortunately, the engraving was judged to be not deep enough for printing methods used in England.
It is likely you will not find any more details on this; suffice to say HM The Queen's another portrait was engraved by English Engraver, without any head gear for the Canadian Bank Notes, but was not used either.
