Full textELIZABETH II DEI GRATIA BRITTANNIARUM OMNIUM REGINA
Translation

(from Latin) Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen of all the Britains.

Description

The cross was used on Medieval English coins to assist in reading the (somewhat cryptic at the time) legends by showing where the legend starts. Later, some other symbols were also used in its place serving also the role of mint marks.

The rest of the legend ("FID DEF" for "FIDEI DEFENSATRIX", Defender of the Faith) is on the reverse of the coin.
