|Full text||CHARLES III DEI GRATIA REX FIDEI DEFENSOR SAINT HELENA|
Translated from Latin, the legend means: Charles the Third, by the Grace of God, King, Defender of the Faith, Saint Helena.
This legend is displayed on the coinage of Saint Helena, which is part of the British Overseas Territory of Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha - owing to which King Charles III is its Head of State. Following a long-standing tradition, the legend is in Latin, and is abbreviated due to lack of space on the coin for the full text.
For the same legend with different abbreviations, see CHARLES III · D · G · REX · F · D · ST. HELENA · and CHARLES III · DEI · GRA · REX · FID · DEF · ST. HELENA ·.
