1793 George III Full Gold Guinea

1793 George III Guinea Reverse

* Images are of the actual product not stock images

A collectable gold full Guinea of King George the Third dated 1793. The obverse features the fifth type laureate head of George III facing right. In this effigy, George’s hair is tied just below his ear and no waves extend over the left shoulder. The reverse shows the spade-shaped shield, designed by Lewis Pingo and introduced in 1787, which gave Guineas minted between this date and 1799 the name ‘spade Guineas’. The arms contained in the crowned shield are those of England and Scotland, France, Hanover and Ireland. Guineas of this design were the last to be struck for circulation (the coin fell out of favour due to rising gold prices) before the Military Guineas of 1813. In 1793, George III had been on the throne for 33 years and would reign another 27 though the last ten of that would be with his son as regent.
