There are annulet stops and a pomegranate (the badge of her mother, Katherine) after MARIA.
VERITAS TEMPORIS FILIA

This is an article about the Mary groat: http://www.ipnumsoc.org.uk/articles/ATudorGroatRevisited.pdf :
Mary I was the daughter of Catherine of Aragon and Henry VIII. She was born in 1516 and in 1553 succeeded to the throne following Edward VI’s death. Mary married Prince Philip of Spain in 1554 and died in 1558. During her reign she attempted to reverse the Protestant reforms of the English church, gaining the appellation “Bloody Mary”.
The Mary I groat was in production for just one year before she married Philip of Spain, leading to the production of a new coin, probably in 1557, the Philip & Mary groat, which was the second coin I found:
|Philip & Mary groat|
Philip and Mary by the Grace of God King and Queen
POSUIMUS DEUM ADIVTO NOS
We have made God our helper
