A collectable gold full Guinea of King George the Third, dated 1765. The obverse features the third type laureate head of the George III facing right. This portrait is distinguished by pointy leaves, the King’s small facial features and a single ringlet that extends over George’s left shoulder. The reverse shows an ornate crowned quartered shield of arms, bearing the arms of England and Scotland (united since 1707), France, Hanover and Ireland. George III was the third British monarch of the House of Hanover. This type of Guinea reverse was introduced during his father George II’s reign to discourage Shillings from being gilded to pass as Guineas. In 1765, George III had been on the throne for five years and would reign another 55.
