The legend engraved on George VI's coins is (without the abbreviations) GEORGIUS VI DEI GRATIA BRITANNIARUM OMNIUM REX FIDEI DEFENSOR INDIAE IMPERATOR, that means George VI by the grace of God King of the British, defender of faith and emperor of the Indies. In 1949 the legend IND:IMP (for the title of Emperor of India) disappears from English coins since British India becomes independent and divides itself into two countries : India and Pakistan.
