Elizabeth II

1953 - 63

After the coronation of HM Queen Elizabeth II in late 1952, the sixpence series obverse was changed to Mary Gillick's effigy of Her Majesty, with the legend "ELIZABETH II DEI GRATIA REGINA ('Elizabeth II, by the grace of god, queen'). This legend was utilised in 1953 and 1954 before being changed in 1955 to read ELIZABETH II DEI GRATIA REGINA F:D ('Elizabeth II, by the grace of god, queen, defender of the faith'). Throughout both of these types the reverse design remained the Blakemore Coat of Arms.
