The Welsh phrase 'Pleidiol wyf i'm gwlad',translated in to English from Welsh, means;'True am I to my country!.'The words are taken from the Welsh National Anthem;'Mae Hen wlad Fy Nhadau,' which translated into English,means ;'The Land of my Fathers.'
This was written in 1856 by James James and Evan James,of Pontypridd,the full words of which can be found at this site:

It is,perhaps,most frequently seen on the reverse of the Welsh edition of the British,1 (One Pound) coin.
A comprehensive list of inscriptions used on coins can be found at:
