I'm pretty bad at narrowing these down very far. Based on the Latin and the portrait this looks to be Henry III, I believe I read Henricus Rex III

Looks to be a penny, I think that's the only option at that size and era, long cross type. Okay, now it's time for somebody else to chime in, I'm out of my depth

It's Henry III, but it's not S 1369, because that's Class 5. The obverse legend starts at 12 o'clock, which means it's earlier than that.

The king hasn't got a sceptre, so it's not Class 4, and the moneyer is named, so it's not Class 1. The regnal number is shown as III (not TERCI), so it's Class 3.

There's a colon stop between REX : III, so it's either Class 3a2, 3c, 3d1 or 3d2.

The eyes are complete circles, so it's 3c, 3d1 or 3d2. The beard is pointed, so it's 3d1 or 3d2. The R doesn't appear to have an upturned tail, so it's 3d1:

Henry III Penny, Class 3d1 (1250), Spink 1364A; North 988.
