The gold Guinea was the standard gold coin of British currency for almost 150 years. Originally valued at £1 (twenty shillings), it became known as the Guinea because it was first minted from gold brought to England from the Guinea Coast of Africa. From the year 1717, its value rose to twenty-one shillings due to an increase in the value of the gold in each coin.


The Guinea was minted between 1663 and 1799 (although a military commemorative issue was made in 1813). From 1817 onward the Sovereign took its place as the premier British gold coin.

This coin features the fourth Head of George III issued between 1774 to 1786. The shield on the reverse was common to all Guineas until 1786.
