Product Description

This special collection brings together the two designs used on guineas during George III’s long reign. From 1761 to 1786, guineas bore an ornate crowned shield containing the arms of England and Scotland, France, Ireland and Hanover.

In 1787 this elaborate design was simplified. The resemblance of the new, simpler shield to the old style long-handled spades earned the coin its famous nickname – ‘spade guinea’! It would be the final guinea minted for general circulation, before the introduction of the modern sovereign.

A richly finished wooden Display Chest will be sent with your second coin, together with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Coins are 25mm in diameter. Display case is 5” x 3¾” x 1?”.
