1689 William & Mary Guinea Reverse

from
£3,400.00
A very collectable gold full Guinea of William and Mary dated 1689. This was the year that the co-monarchs were crowned, following the deposition of James II. The obverse features the famous conjoined portrait busts of King William III and Queen Mary II, with William in the foreground, crowned with a wreath of laurels. The reverse shows the crowned quartered shield of arms representing England, France and Ireland, with the rampant lion of Nassau at the centre, representing William’s House, that of Orange-Nassau. This coin has the scarcer reverse variant of the slanted Irish harp with the base aligned with the ‘E’ of ‘REX’, compared to the later upright variation from the same year. This year was the first to feature the shield and the lion of Nassau and the well collected and popular conjoined busts that was only struck over 5 years.
