An Ornament & A Safeguard


Included in this special collection of 2020 Guineas are design inspired by the following coins:

The ‘Military’ Guinea
The ‘Military’ Guinea, as it was commonly referred, was struck specifically for the Duke of Wellington’s men searching for Napoleon’s army in France. An uncirculated coin, it is thought to be the rarest Guinea of all with only 80,000 coins ever minted. Inspired by the last Guinea to ever be minted the 2020 Guinea gold proof coin features the shield of the Royal Arms surrounded by a garter reading HONI SOIT QUI MAL Y PENSE (‘Shame on him who thinks this evil’).

The Spade Half Guinea
Featuring one of the most recognised guinea designs, the 2020 Spade Half Guinea takes its design from the original, a crowned shield of the Royal Arms. Introduced in 1787, the Spade Half Guinea was struck until 1800. It earned the nickname ‘Spade Guinea’ due to its resemblance to an old long-handled spade.

The Rose Crown Quarter Guinea
The Quarter Guinea was only ever issued twice due to its size and featured the ornate shield found commonly referred to as the ‘Rose’ guinea due to its rose like shape. A minting masterpiece of its time, its small size meant it was prone to loss which made it unpopular. Only 1,135,000 quarter-guineas were struck in 1762. Inspired by this majestic coin, the 2020 Quarter Guinea features the beautiful Rose Crown motif of its 18th century predecessor.
