Description

The earlier official style of Queen Anne before was "Anne, by the Grace of God, Queen of England, Scotland, France and Ireland, Defender of the Faith, etc." After the union between England and Scotland (the two countries became Great Britain), her style became "Anne, by the Grace of God, Queen of Great Britain, France and Ireland, Defender of the Faith, etc." In line with other monarchs of England between 1340 and 1800, Anne was styled "Queen of France" as a claim on the French throne, but did not actually reign in France.

On coinage, the legend was written in an abbreviated form and in Latin. The above legend omits the "Defender of the Faith" part.
