Translation

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

This legend was displayed on British gold bullion coinage between 1974 and 1984, and on base metal commemorative coins in 1986, 1993 and 2003, during the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. 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.

On the Two Pounds coin commemorating the XIII Commonwealth Games in 1986 and the Coronation Anniversary £5 in 1993, the denomination was also written on the obverse.

Below, you can find a list of the individual coins that have this legend on their obverse.

Note: on most coins the legend is rendered as + ELIZABETH · II · DEI · GRATIA · REGINA · F : D : (starting with a cross) for which see separate list.
