What does omn rex on a coin mean?
You refer to only part of the inscription on British and Commonwealth coins. OMN REX is abbreviated Latin for "King of all", OMN REGINA is "Queen of all". OMN REX (or OMN REGINA) has appeared on all British coins from 1902 until the mid-1950's. Depending on the state of the British Commonwealth and the reigning King or Queen, the entire inscription might look something like this - EDWARDVS VII DEI GRA BRITT OMN REX FID DEF IND IMP which means "Edward VII by the Grace of God, King of all the British Territories, Defender of the Faith, Emperor of India". On smaller coins such as the Threepence, the Latin is more heavily abbreviated to fit it onto the coin. EDWARDVS VII D G BRITT OMN REX F D IND IMP

What could a coin that is bigger than a quarter with a man's face on the front with letters that look like deigra Britt omn rex and a person that seems to be sitting on the back be?
\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nWhat color is the coin - copper, silver or brass? Based on the inscription it's from the U.K.\n. \nAssuming copper color ... Great Britain Penny or Half Penny ... in this condition it's worth less than a dollar.
The motto has changed somewhat over the years, and different abbreviations are used depending on the size of the coin. Basically, it's heavily abbreviated Latin meaning
The phrase was used on British coins and is short for Georgius V Dei gratia Britanniarum omnium rex, fidei defensor, India imperator . It is Latin and in English it means: George V, by the grace of God, King of all Britains [sic], defender of the faith, Emperor of India.
Your coin is from England during the reign of King George V. In average condition it's worth $3-4. The motto is heavily abbreviated Latin and appears, with variations, on all U.K. coins. If you check again you'll see that the king's name iis actually spelled Georgius V
It is Latin, but abbreviated.. The expression "GEORGIVS V" identifies the reigning Monarch of the period, in this case, King George V. It does not identify the country or the denomination of the coin.. "DEI GRA BRITT OMN REX FID DEF IND IMP" means "By the Grace of God, King of all the British territories, Defender of the Faith, Emperor of India".
It is a heavily abbreviated Latin inscription that appears, with variations, on all coins from countries in the British Empire or British Commonwealth. A reasonable translation is: "George V, By the Grace of God, King of all the British Territories, Defender of the Faith, and Emperor of India". It tells us who the King is, it tells us nothing about the coin. Of course the name of the monarch will be different for each king or queen, and the "ind imp" was removed when India became independent.
What is the coin that has the inscription on it georgivs v dei gra Britt omn rex fid def ind imp dated 1935 worth?
That inscription (with variations depending on who is king or queen) appears on ALL British coins. The coin's denomination is needed to ID it - just posting the motto is a bit like trying to determine what a U.S. coin is worth because it has E Pluribus Unum or Liberty on it, LOL! The coin's denomination will probably be on the front, i.e. the side without the motto. Look for a word such as farthing, penny, shilling, florin, etc. and then please post a new question.
What is the value of 1920 penny with georgivs v g v Britt omn rex ind imo on the front and a 3 on the back of the coin?
The 1920 Great Britain 3 Pence are worth about a $1 U.S. if theyhave been circulated. Fully uncirculated coins can be worth as muchas $40.
You are quoting the Latin inscription that appears on ALL coins from the British Empire / Commonwealth. You have told us all about the King, but nothing about the coin. Please post a new question with the coin's date, denomination, and how worn it is so that it can be identified and evaluated. The denomination will be something possibly peculiar such as a "farthing", "shilling", or "half-crown" or maybe the more familiar "penny".
All you have told us is that you have a British coin or a coin from any of the 50 plus British Empire/Commonwealth countries issued in the reign of George V. "Georgivs v Britt omn rex et ind imp" is abbreviated Latin for the Kings many titles and means - "George V, King of all Britain and Emperor of India". You need to give us the year and denomination, along with an estimate of the condition of the coin in order for us to give you an estimation of value.
Any British or Commonwealth coin issued between 1937 and 1947 would have that motto, which is an abbreviation for the latin phrase which means: George VI, By the Grace of God, King of all Britain, Defender of the Faith, and Emperor of India After 1947, when India became independent, the "ind imp" (or "Emperor of India") was dropped from the motto. It tells us who the King was. It tells us nothing about the coin.
What is a coin of 1914-1918 georgivs v Britt omn rex et ind imp with a man on a horse and a scull on the ground worth?
The inscription is a modified version of the inscription that appears on many British and British Empire coins from the period 1911 to 1936. It means - George V, Omnipotent King of Britain and Emperor of India. The coin to which you refer is most likely a British World War 1 campaign medal.
Was it common to change a British coin into a Silver ring inscription two shillings 1944 fid def imp omn rex?
It has been fashionable on and off for a few hundred years to convert or incorporate coins into jewellery such as rings, pendants, brooches, buttons, and more recently, wrist watches. The jewellery might be worth something, but the coin is rendered worthless by modifying or altering it.
Your coin was produced in 1917 and is British (or, potentially, Australian or Canadian). It's value would depend on its actual country of origin, its denomination and its condition. By the way "Georgivs V Dei Gra Britt Omn Rex Fid Def Ind Imp" is abbreviated Latin for " George the Fifth, By the Grace of God, King of All Britain, Defender of the Faith, and Emperor of India ."
What is the value of a georgivs v dei gra Britt omn rex fid def ind imp 1919 coin about an inch and a quarter diameter?
You are likely referring to a British 1919 Penny (KM#810). It is made of bronze, weighs 9.45 grams, measures 30.8mm across, has a portrait of King George V facing left on the front of the coin, and a picture of Britannia seated and facing to the right on the back of the coin. About 118.2 million were produced in 1919 at three different mints. The most common (over 95% of the aggregate mintage) was produced at the Royal Mint and has no mintmark; it is worth (according to the Standard Catalog of World Coins) about US$0.80 in Fine condition, about US$2.50 in Very Fine condition, about US$17.00 in Extremely Fine condition, and about US$50.00 in Uncirculated condition. The coin was also produced at the Heaton Mint and has a small "H" mintmark; it is worth about US$1.25 in Fine condition, about US$13.00 in Very Fine condition, about US$275.00 in Extremely Fine condition, and about US$1,000.00 in Uncirculated condition. Finally, it was also produced at the King's Norton Mint and has a small "KN" mintmark; it is worth about US$4.00 in Fine condition, about US$25.00 in Very Fine condition, about US$400.00 in Extremely Fine condition, and about US$2,200.00 in Uncirculated condition. Note that the 1919 Australian Penny is the same size and has the same wording on the front. The back, however, reads "Commonwealth of Australia" and "One Penny" - since you didn't mention such an obvious identifier, I presume that you refer to the British coin. By the way, the phrase "GEORGIVS V DEI GRA BRITT OMN REX FID DEF IND IMP" is abbreviated Latin for "George the Fifth, By the Grace of God, King of All Britons [or "Britain"], Defender of the Faith, and Emperor of India."
It is abbreviated latin for "Edward the Seventh, by the Grace of God, King of All Britain [or "All Britons"], Defender of the Faith, and Emperor of India."
If a coin is inscribed Georgivs vi d g br omn rex f d ind imp and says Australia Penny on the back is it an Australian coin a British coin or a British coin from Australia?
It is an Australian coin. George VI of England was also King of the Commonwealth countries.
Any British or Commonwealth coin issued between 1910 and 1936 would have that motto, which is an abbreviation for the latin phrase which means: George V, By the Grace of God, King of all Britain, Defender of the Faith, and Emperor of India It tells us all about King George V, but nothing about the coin or country of origin.
There were five British coins issued in 1902 with the portrait of King Edward (and the latin abbreviation you refer to) on the obverse and St George slaying the dragon on the reverse:. Crown - silver, 28.2759g., 92.5% silver (0.8409 tr oz. ASW), 38.5 mm in diameter. Valued at about US$50 in Fine condition, $125 in Extremely Fine, and $250 in Uncirculated.. 1/2 sovereign - gold, 3.99g of 91.7% gold (0.1177 tr oz AGW). 1 sovereign - gold, 7.99g of 91.7% gold (0.2355 tr oz AGW). 2 pounds - gold, 15.98g of 91.7% gold (0.4710 tr oz AGW). 5 pounds - gold, 39.94g of 91.7% gold (1.1775 tr oz AGW). Of the gold coins, only the 5 pound coin looks to be valued at more than a 10% or 20% premium above the melt value of the gold, and even then only in Uncirculated condition.. Note that versions of the gold coins were produced by Australia as well - while they look very similar, the 1/2 sovereign is worth 2 to 3 times that of its British counterpart, and the 2 pound and 5 pound coins are each worth potentially ten of thousands of dollars.
Does anybody know what a Georgivs V dei gra Britt omn rex fid def ind imp double headed coin is worth?
Any coin with a "genuine" minting flaw would have some value, above the usual, as a collectible coin.. Genuinely flawed coins are not necessarily known about or documented until somebody turns up with one, since they are an "accident" of the minting process, and have escaped detection during quality control at the mint therefore, a valuation cannot be anticipated.. A reputable coin dealer should be able to identify and confirm the coin as genuine and make a valuation.. Flaws and errors on coins should not be confused with mutilation or mangling of the coin.. It should be noted that many people have the interest, skill and enthusiasm to fraudulently alter otherwise normal coins for the purpose of personal gain or notoriety.. Also, many coins are commercially produced for magic or trick purposes and these include "double headers/tails" and "impossible" coins like a US silver Dollar on one side and a British copper Penny on the other.
It could be a coin of almost any denomination from any one of the more than 50 countries of the British Commonwealth.
Do I have a 1911 Five Pound gold coin on one side of the coin reads Georgivs V dgbritt omn rex fd ind imp and on the other side is St George slaying the dragon 1911 coin is 16mm diam?
No, it is not a Five Pound coin. There were four different gold coin issued in 1911 with George V on the obverse and St George and the Dragon on the reverse. The Five Pound and Two Pound, both as Proof only, and the Sovereign and Half-Sovereign. The Five Pound coin was the largest of the gold coins in 1911 at about 38mm. The Half-Sovereign was the smallest of the gold coins in 1911 at 19.5mm. I cannot find any reference to a 1911 British 16mm gold coin.
What is this coin please its gold 1911 reads georgivs v dg Britt omn rex f d ind imp and on the other side st george slaying the dragon coin is only 16mm diameter?
The Royal Mint has not issued any 16mm gold coins as you describe. It sounds very similar to a Sovereign or a Half-Sovereign, but smaller. There is a dealer of questionable reputation claiming to have exclusive rights to a quantity of Quarter-Sovereign coins, a coin that was never produced until the Royal Mint produced one in 2009. Alternatively, you may have a privately issued medallion or token issued for the Coronation of George V.
What is the worth of a 1918 georgivs v dei gra Britt omn rex fid def ind imp coin in mint condition?
You do not specify a denomination or a country. The coin could be from any one of the British Empire countries issuing coins at that time.
Every British or British Empire/Commonwealth coin issued from 1911 to 1936 will have that inscription, or something very similar. GEORGIVS V D.G.BRITT:OMN:REX F.D.IND:IMP: tells me who the King was, using abbreviated Latin for his extensive titles, but nothing about the coin. If there is no country name on it, it is most likely British. What is the denomination, what metal is it made from, what is the design on the reverse, what is the diameter?the desighn on rev,is a crown at top undernieth is a 3 with date1913 and a wreath around perimiter.the metal i think is silver.
You are asking about a 1 Florin coin from Great Britain. Its face value, 1 Florin, is equal to 2 shillings, or 1/10 of a Pound. 6,556,000 of these coins were produced in 1930. It is 28.3mm in diameter, weighs 11.3104 grams, and is 50% Silver - the ASW (Actual Siver Weight) is thus 0.1818 troy ounces. This gives it a "melt value" of US$3.25 (as of January 20, 2010). According to the Standard Catalog of World Coins, the coin is worth US$5.00 in Very Fine condition, US$12.50 in Extremely Fine condition, and US$37.50 in Uncirculated condition. By the way, the wording on the front of the coin "GEORGIVS V DEI GRA BRITT OMN REX" is abbreviated Latin for "George the Fifth, By the Grace of God, King of All Britain."
Any British coin or any coin from any of the British Commonwealth countries issued from 1937 to 1948 will have that inscription. The inscription does not identify the coin, only the Monarch. Assigning value to coins is a very difficult subject, there is not enough information in your question to give an answer. There are on-line guides which will help you out. Alternatively you could take the coin to a store that sells collectible coins for an estimate.. First you must identify the type of coin in regards to; country of issue, year minted, and face value. Also there may be variations in different mints or die sets used. . Second you will have to assess the condition of the coin, this is somewhat subjective and the age and rarity of the coin need be taken into account. Wear, scratches, minting errors, holes and improper handling can all diminish a coins value. Also, I must advise you not to clean your coin, improper cleaning can damage a coin and reduce it's value immensely. A "patina" is valued on historic objects and removing it diminishes the item's value. . After this, you must take the first two into account and compare your coin with similar coins to determine value.
Can a gold coin from England Georgius V dei gra Britt omn rex fid def ind imp but with the date 1895 and no mintmark be a mistake in the coin or date?
15 years is a very big mistake especially for a gold coin. I suggest that the coin is not what it appears to be. A reputable coin dealer will be able to identify your coin and give a valuation if it turns out to be genuine.
You are referring to a Crown coin from Great Britain (KM#880) issued in 1951 for the Festival of Britain. The coin is maide of Copper-Nickel and measures 38.61mm in diameter. The obverse has a portrait of King George VI, the words "GEORGIVS VI D:G:BR:OMN:REX:FD" (abbreviated Latin for "George the Sixth, by the Grace of God, King of All Britain and Defender of the Faith") and "FIVE SHILLINGS" (the denomination, also called a Crown, and equivalent to a quarter of a British Pound). The reverse has an image of St. George slaying the dragon and the date, 1951. Approximately two million of these coins were produced, and they are worth (according to the Standard Catalog of World Coins) US$22.50 in Uncirculated condition and US$25.00 in Proof condition. There were also about 30 to 50 Frosted Cameo Proofs issued to VIPs - these are valued at about US$800.00 each - as well as one or two Matte Proof examples (most likely produced for photography purposes) worth perhaps US$3,500.00 each.
I have no idea and, it will probably never be known, however, the Royal Mint produced more than 614,881,000 general circulation coins during the reign of Edward VII for use within Britain and the colonies and countries of the British Empire who used the British currency at the time. This figure does not include British coins minted at Mints other than the Royal Mint, non-general circulation coins such as gold Five Pound, Two Pound, Sovereign and Half-Sovereign coins, Proof or especially struck coins, and it does not include coins minted at other mints for the use of other British Empire countries.
What is the coin that has the inscription Georgivs V dg Britt omn rex fd ind imp dated 1916 with Saint George slaying the dragon on horse back?
Your coin is either a British gold Sovereign or a gold Half-Sovereign. The Half-Sovereign is 19.3mm in diameter. The Sovereign is 22.05mm in diameter. PS - St George is on horse back, not the dragon.
You have two problems with this question. 1. Every British or British Empire/Commonwealth coin issued from 1911 to 1936 will have that inscription, or something very similar. GEORGIVS V D.G.BRITT:OMN:REX F.D.IND:IMP: tells me who the King was, using abbreviated Latin for his extensive titles, but nothing about the coin. 2. George V did not become King until 1910, and the first coins with his image on them were issued in 1911. If there is no country name on it, it is most likely British. What is the denomination, what metal is it made from, what is the design on the reverse, what is the diameter?
"GEORGIVS V DEI GRA BRITT OMN REX FID DEF IND IMP" is highly abbreviated Latin and translates to - "George V by the Grace of God, King of all the British territories, Defender of the Faith, Emperor of India". The phrase varies as the Monarch and the gender of the Monarch changes, and as the circumstances of the British Empire/Commonwealth changes. It would have appeared on all British coins, and many of the coins of the British Empire/Commonwealth countries from 1911 to 1936.
A 1937 British coin with a shield on the reverse could be either a Crown or a Halfcrown. The Crown has a crowned shield with a lion on one side and a unicorn on the other. It will also have CROWN : 1937 across the bottom. The Halfcrown has a shield with a crown either side of it. It will also have HALF CROWN : 1937 across the bottom.
What is the coin worth that has the inscription georgivs v dei gra Britt omn rex fid def ind imp dated 1914?
Most coins issued by Britain or many of the British Empire countries would have carried that inscription in 1914.
Any British coin, or any coin from any of the 50 plus British Empire/Commonwealth countries might have had that inscription in 1949. However, if there is no country name and the entire inscription as written appears on the "heads" side of the coin, it is most likely a British bronze Penny, Halfpenny or Farthing, or a nickel-brass dodecagonal Threepence.
What is this 1908 gold coin reads edwardvs vii d g Britt omn rex f d ind imp other side their is a guy on a horse with a sword looks like slaying a dragon this coin is in mint condition?
There were only two different British gold coins minted in 1908, the Sovereign and the Half-Sovereign coins. Both are 22 carat gold. The Sovereign is 22.05 mm in diameter and the Half-Sovereign is 19.3 mm in diameter. Both feature Edward VII on the obverse and St. George slaying a dragon on the reverse. The coins may have been minted at the Royal Mint (no mintmark) or the Ottawa, Melbourne, Perth or Sydney Mints with mintmarks C, M, P or S respectively, to the right of the date.
It depends on condition, you should take it to a coin dealer for an appraisal. That long string of gibberish is a series of abbreviations for the Latin phrase meaning "George V, by the grace of God King of all Britain, defender of the faith, Emperor of India."
Literally it means "All the blessed", but it might more broadly imply "All the saints".
There is not enough information given to answer. That's an abbreviated form of the Latin title of George VI (translated, it's "George VI, by the grace of God King of all Britain"), and would have been on most UK or British Commonwealth coinage in 1949.
It would be a 1937 British Halfpenny, featuring King George VI on the obverse and Sir Francis Drakes ship, the Golden Hind on the reverse. 1937 was the first year George VI and the new sailing ship design appeared on British Halfpenny coins. The coins are made from bronze, are 26mm in diameter, weigh 5.7 grams, and there were 24,504,000 minted. They are neither rare nor valuable.
What is the meaning of the picture on the back of the georgivs v dei grar Britt omn rex fid def ind imp coin?
George V was king from 6 May 1910 into 20 January 1936 and appeared on most coins of the over 30 British Empire countries at that time. For more specific information, please narrow down the possibilities a lot with a specific country name, year, the metal the coin appears to be made from, and a description of the image... Without knowing which coin is being referred to, we will discuss the notation mentioned in your question from the front of (most) coins with George V on the obverse (front) of the coin -- The inscription is an abbreviated form of the full Latin words and/or phrases: " Georgius V, Dei Gratias Brittania Rex, Fidei Defendorum, Indius Imperatus " The best and most basic translation is: " George V, by the Grace of God King of Brittania, Defender of the Faith, Emperor of India " Another breakdown: Georgius V, -- George V, or George the Fifth Dei Gratias -- by the Grace of God Brittania Rex, -- King of Brittania, or King of Britain (i.e., Great Britain) Fidei Defendorum, -- Defendor of the Faith Indius Imperatus -- (and) Emperor of India Please note that for many years, until India's (and Pakistan's) independence from Britain, in 1947, this inscription, or some form of it, appeared on British Realm and Commonwealth coinage. After 1947, the portion relating to India was removed. Eventually, most all of the inscription was simplified, as, for example, to the current " Elizabeth II D. G. Regina ", meaning " Elizabeth II, by the Grace of God, Queen" , with the part about England or Britain simply implied or understood , or simply " Elizabeth II ", or " Elizabeth the Second " spelled out, with all or anything of her titles left off, simply implied or understood . The latter inscription, " Elizabeth the Second ", is found on many of the coins of some British territorial Islands or Commonwealth countries. King George V was followed on 20 January 1936 by his first son, Edward VII. But Edward abdicated on 11 December 1936, and was followed by his brother Albert, who took the kingly, or reignal, name George VI (the Sixth), after their father, reigning from the same 11 December 1936 into 6 February 1952, and appeared on the coinage of that time period. He was followed by his daughter, the current reigning Sovereign, Queen Elizabeth II (the Second), who assumed the throne on 6 February 1952, and has been appearing on British and Commonwealth coinage since the mint year 1953. By the way, Elizabeth is celebrating her 60th year as Queen in 2012. Expect this to be memorialized on much, if not all, of the Commonwealth coinage. Hope this helps!
It depends on the denomination and condition of the coin. Note that "GEORGIVS V DEI GRA BRITT OMN REX FID DEF IND IMP" is abbreviated Latin for "George the Fifth, by the Grace of God, King of all Britain, Defender of the Faith, and Emperor of India".
The abbreviation "om" means "every morning," and the abbreviation"on" means "every night." If you are confused about something onyour prescription's label, or aren't sure when or how to take it,it is important that you consult a pharmacist.
Such a coin does not exist. IND IMP was dropped from the legend of British and British Empire coins in 1948 when India became independent. A 1950 coin with the legend "GEORGIVS VI D G BR OMN REX F D" (no IND IMP) may have come from any of the 50 plus British Empire countries.
This question doesn't include a denomination for the coin, and as such doesn't have enough information for an answer.
That describes all circulating British coins for that year. Post a new question, but make sure to include the denomination (penny, shilling, etc.)
That inscription is found on all British and Commonwealth coins from the time of King George V's reign (1911-1936). It's an abbreviation of a Latin phrase, which translated means "George V, By the Grace of God, King of all Britain, Defender of the Faith, and Emperor of India."
That motto translates from (heavily abbreviated) Latin into Englishas "George V, by the Grace of God King of All Britain, Defender ofthe Faith, Emperor of India". That gives us a rough idea of how oldit is, but George was king for about 25 years and we don't knowwhich specific year the coin was minted, and that turns out to bequite important. We also need to know if it has a mint mark or not.Finally, we'd need to know the condition, and for that you'dprobably need to have an expert look at it, and if you're going togo to all that trouble, just have him give you the value also.
Check that one again. King George V died in 1936, so he wasn't onany circulating coinage dated 1957.
