Description

This legend was displayed on British and colonial coinage between 1911 and 1936 during the reign of King George V. 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.

Note: spelled as "GEORGIVS V. DG. BRITT: OMN: REX. FD. IND: IMP:" on the 1935 "Rocking Horse" (modern St George) crown.
