Translated from Latin: Charles the Third, by the Grace of God, King, Defender of the Faith.

United Kingdom / Fifty Pence 2022 In Memory of Queen Elizabeth II

This legend is displayed on the coinage of the United Kingdom issued during the reign of King Charles III. By a long standing tradition, British coinage uses the Latin language for the obverse legends. In a departure from tradition though, the name of the monarch is given as Charles and not in its Latinised form Carolus, as was the case of the two previous kings named Charles.
