Translation

Translated from Latin: Elizabeth the Second, by the grace of God, Queen, Defender of the Faith [year].

United Kingdom / Ten Pence 1970

This legend of Queen Elizabeth II is used on the coinage of the United Kingdom, which by long-standing tradition has the monarch's legend in Latin language. On the coins of other countries where she is monarch, the legends are in English.

The dividers between the words differ based on the Queen's portrait, e.g. ELIZABETH · II D · G · REG · F · D · [year] with the Machin portrait, but ELIZABETH II D · G · REG · F · D · [year] for the Maklouf portrait or ELIZABETH · II · D · G REG · F · D · [year] for the Rank-Broadley portrait. Position also varies, see photos below.
