Product Description

The guinea was first issued in 1663, during the reign of Charles II. Notable as the first gold coin to be machine-struck in England, it was made from solid 22ct gold.

This Charles II guinea features a bust of the King wearing a laurel wreath on the obverse. The reverse shows four crowned shields bearing the arms of England, Scotland, France, and Ireland. The inscription MAG BR FRA ET HIB REX translates as “King of Great Britain, France, and Ireland.”

The gold coin is encapsulated for protection and mounted on a richly-finished wooden panel, which can lie flat or be set at an angle within the handsome display chest provided at no extra charge.

The date you receive will depend on our limited supply. This is a rare opportunity to own a magnificent gold coin that is over 330 years old!

Display is 5” x 3¾” x 1?”.
