Description

This legend was displayed on British bullion coinage (various denominations of the sovereign type) between 1985 and 1999 during the reign of Queen Elizabeth II and carrying her "Third portrait" by Raphael Maklouf. By long-standing tradition, the legends of ruling British monarchs are rendered in Latin. On coinage, these are abbreviated because of the limited space available. Below, you can find a list of the individual coins that had it on their obverse.
