Charles II gold – England’s first Guinea!

In 1663, in the heady days after the Restoration of the Monarchy and the return of Charles II, England launched the Gold Guinea. Guineas of Charles II are among the rarest and most sought after of the series – particularly in premium quality. With so many dispatched overseas in pursuit of trade, and melted for the gold, Charles II Guineas are extremely rare in the state of preservation seen here. Carrying a strong portrait of ‘the Merry Monarch’, this 1679 Guinea has been graded Very Fine.
