The 2018 Royal Arms Guinea

Featuring the official coat of arms of the Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, known as the ‘Royal Arms’, it comprises of a shield depicting the three lions passant guardant of England in the first and fourth quarters; the lion rampant of Scotland in the second; and a harp for Ireland in the third. The shield is surrounded by a garter, with lion and unicorn supporters. A smaller version of the coronation royal cypher ‘ERII’ taken from Her Majesty’s Robe of Estate appears above.

The 2018 Coronation Guinea

With a design inspired by the commemorative crowns issued in 1953 to celebrate the Coronation, it features four shields bearing the individual arms of the United Kingdom, separated by the jewelled Sword of Offering and the Sovereign’s Sceptre, both objects of the Crown Jewels that play a role in the coronation ceremony. As with the Royal Arms and Royal Cypher Guinea, a version of the coronation royal cypher ‘ERII’ from Her Majesty’s Robe of Estate appears in the centre.

This special issue of three gold proof Guineas are a celebration of a unique moment in royal history and the first to be issued featuring royal emblems directly related to Her Majesty. Inspired by the tradition of using heraldic symbols and intricate designs to create strong royal motifs, the designs draw inspiration from symbols relating directly to the coronation ceremony to create the world’s first collection of Queen Elizabeth II Guineas.

 

Details

The 65th Anniversary of Her Majesty’s Coronation – The Sapphire Jubilee Collection

On 2 June 1953 at Westminster Abbey a young and humble Princess Elizabeth took the oath to serve her people as their Sovereign and Queen.

For sixty-five years, during a period of great change in Britain, the Commonwealth and internationally, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has loyally carried out her duties as the Head of State. Tirelessly devoting her life to her people, she has become a focus for unity, stability and fortitude.

Following a journey at times steeped with trial and tribulations, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is celebrated by her people as she remains Britain’s longest reigning monarch. A remarkable woman who has for the past sixty-five years not only represented but preserved all that Britain and the Commonwealth Nations stand for – integrity, endurance, faith and hope.

This special issue of three gold proof Guineas are a celebration of a unique moment in royal history and the first to be issued featuring royal emblems directly related to Her Majesty. Inspired by the tradition of using heraldic symbols and intricate designs to create strong royal motifs, the designs draw inspiration from symbols relating directly to the coronation ceremony to create the world’s first collection of Queen Elizabeth II Guineas.

The Chairman’s Message

The history of the Guinea and The East India Company are intertwined. During the era of the Guinea, The Company’s reach expanded as new opportunities for trade and commerce developed into the Americas, Asia and beyond. The Guinea’s reputation for purity and reliability internationally made commerce easier, meaning it was one of the preferred currencies on board Company ships. Just as the Sovereign was later to rule at home, the Guinea dominated the colonial age.

We are delighted to release this series of special 2018 Guineas to celebrate the 65th anniversary of Her Majesty’s coronation. Following on from the tradition of creating Guinea designs using heraldic symbols of the ruling monarch, these coins are the very first Guineas issued entirely for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as she celebrates her Sapphire Jubilee.
