Elizabeth II

1953 - 63

After the coronation of HM Queen Elizabeth II in late 1952, the obverse design changed to the bust of Elizabeth II facing to the right with the legend ELIZABETH II DEI GRATIA REGINA ('Elizabeth II, by the grace of god, queen'), designed by Mary Gillick. This legend was used in 1953 and 1954, then was altered due to public outcry of the omission of FIDEI DEF ('defender of the faith'). In 1956 the new type was changed to feature the slightly reworded obverse legend, ELIZABETH II DEI GRATIA REGINA F:D ('Elizabeth II, by the grace of god, queen, defender of the faith'). These two Elizabeth II types feature a decorated coat of arms at the centre of the reverse, FLORIN up the top, and AUSTRALIA down below, with the year of issue just above that.
