The Legacy of the Guinea
At the height of The East India Company’s trade, the Guinea remained the official currency, underpinning much of its growth and influence in the colonies. Just as the Sovereign was to reign at home, so the Guinea dominated the Golden Age of the Colonies. The East India Company Guinea bears the decimal face value of £1.05, equivalent of 21 shillings, and exactly matches the size and 22 carat gold purity as its antecedents. Minted under the reign of Queen Elizabeth II, the Guinea is once again a symbol of trust in a new journey of exploration, trade, discovery and adventure.
