This Latin expression, or a variant of it, usually abbreviated, depending on the Monarch of the time and the state of the Empire/Commonwealth, appears on the coins of all British and most, if not all, British Commonwealth countries.

This particular variant - Dei Gratia Regina Fidei Defensor - means Elizabeth II, by the Grace of God, Queen, Defender of the Faith.

D.G. or DEI GRA or DEI GRATIA = by the Grace of God
REG. or REGINA = Queen
REX = King
F.D. or FID. DEF. (FIDEI DEFENSOR) = Defender of the Faith

Due to space restrictions on most coins, it most commonly appears as - ELIZABETH II D. G. REG. F. D.

It identifies the reigning Monarch of the British Empire/Commonwealth, not the coin or the country of origin.
