|, NEWQueen Victoria inherited the throne at 18, after her father's three elder brothers had all died leaving no legitimate, surviving male children. The UK was already a constitutional monarchy, in which the sovereign held relatively little direct political power. Privately, Victoria attempted to influence government policy and ministerial appointments. Publicly, she became a national icon and was identified with strict standards of personal morality. Her reign of 63 years and seven months is known as the Victorian era. The inscription "Decus et Tutamen" can be translated to mean both "glory and defense" or "an ornament and a safeguard." The inscription was intended to both enhance the design of the coin and protected it against clipping.
