Description

This legend was displayed on British bullion coinage (various denominations of the sovereign type) between 1999 and 2016 during the reign of Queen Elizabeth II and carrying her "Fourth Portrait" by Ian Rank-Broadley. 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.
