2016 Guinea Gold Proof Three Coin Set
The new gold One Guinea, Half Guinea and Quarter Guinea are all struck to the exact same size and weight as each original coin. The One Guinea features the spade design from the last circulating Guineas struck under King George III – a simplified shield with quarters containing the arms of England and Scotland, France, Hanover and Ireland. The Half Guinea features the garter design from the last circulating Guineas ever issue under King George III – the new shield of the Royal Arms. The Quarter Guinea features the rose shield design from the last Quarter Guineas ever issued under King George III.
All three coins feature Angular rope milling, the first coins in 200 years to feature it.
Sectional frosting between a series of connection lines denote the extent of The East India Company’s global reach, adding a modern dimension to a design deeply rooted in British history. The E.I.C Provenance mark features on the One Guinea coin under the effigy of HM Queen Elizabeth II
