Description

This legend was displayed on British coinage between 1937 and 1948 during the reign of King George VI. After the Independence of India in 1947, the legend changed and later coinage omitted the reference to the King in his capacity as Emperor of India.

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.
