The 2012 One Guinea Gold Coin
Just as the Mohur was the basis of trade and wealth in India, the Guinea was the main currency in Britain representing the power and influence of the Empire. Struck from 1663 to 1813, during the height of British colonial expansion, the Guinea was the first English machine struck coin and one of the most famous British coins of all time. The East India Company Guinea features a unique 'Compass Milling' representing travel, exploration and discovery. Representing the past and present, The East India Company Guinea keeps true to the age of discovery and adventure for which the Guinea stands, re-born today as a marque of trade and trust for a new generation.
