First struck in 1663, the Guinea was a mainstay of British coinage for centuries until its final striking and replacement by the Sovereign in 1817. To commemorate the 200th anniversary of the last Guinea, St. Helena has released this fantastic Silver Guinea Proof, struck in a full ounce of 99.9% fine silver and decorated with 24k gold gilding on the reverse design. The design is based on that of the "spade guinea," introduced in 1787 under the rule of King George III. It features the arms of the United Kingdom (England and Scotland), France, Ireland and Hanover. This fantastic coin can be added to your collection today, but only if you act fast -- no more than 10,000 will ever be produced. So don’t wait -- order now!
