Translation

Translated ffrom Latin: Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen, Defender of the Faith.

This legend has been displayed on British coinage during the reign of Queen Elizabeth II and is associated with her "Fourth Portrait" by Ian Rank-Broadley; it was also used on the Sovereign commemoratives of 1989 with her seated effigy by Bernard Sindall.

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.

For the same legend but with date, see separate list for legend ELIZABETH II · DEI · GRA · REG · FID · DEF · [year] ·.
