My Pound Coins This Morning

As I was contemplating going to the fruit lady this morning I checked my change and found I had three pound coins. I don't know why today particularly i checked but I found I had:
  • 2 that say: PLEIDIOL WYF I'M GWLAD (true am I to my country) and have leeks on their tails
  • Of these 2 the writing is printed different ways up - one reads right-way-round if the leek is up, the other if the queen is up
  • The other one says: NEMO ME IMPUNE LACESSIT (nobody provokes me with impunity) and has a lion on its tail

And so off I am to the fruit lady to spend my £3.
