Buy Gold Half Sovereign George III (1760-1820) Georgian Coins
In British history, the Georgian period begins with the accession of king George I in 1714. He belonged to the House of Hanover and inherited the thrones of Great Britain and Ireland from his second cousin, Queen Anne. The Georgian period in Britain covers the reigns of his successors: George II (1727-1760), George III (1760-1820) and George IV (1820-1830). We’re also including the short reign of William IV (1830-1837) in our Georgian category. In coinage this period saw precious metal shortages, emergency counter stamped issues, the invention of steam-driven coin presses, the Great Recoinage of 1816, the first official token coinage and the introduction of the Sovereign.
