from
£1,450.00
A collectable gold full Guinea of king George the First, dated 1726. The obverse features the fifth type laureate bust of George I, facing right. This was the final bust used on Guineas as George died in 1727. The reverse shows crowned cruciform shields representing England and Scotland (united by the Act of Union in 1707), France, Ireland and the House of Hanover. George I was the first British Hanoverian monarch. Sceptres in the angles between the shields terminate in an orb, a thistle, a Fleur-de-lis and a harp, emanating from a central sunburst garter motif. The value of a guinea had fluctuated over the years but became officially fixed at 21 shillings in 1717, the year Great Britain adopted the gold standard.
