Description

This legend was displayed on some British coinage (silver and half crowns only) between 1902 and 1910 during the reign of King Edward VII. It is not the full text - the rest of the legend, FID: DEF: IND: IMP: (Defender of the Faith, Emperor of India) is on the reverse of the coin.

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.
