1773 Gold Guinea George III Fourth Head Crowned Shield of Arms

George III spade guinea spink refererence number 3727. 

This gold guinea features the fourth laureate portrate of king George III, with the crowned shield of arms on the reverse design. 

Two grades of this coin are show in the pictures, however, the current coin we have in stock as of Oct 2019 is in poor grade and has previously been mounted, resulting in a small grey solder mark in the legend on the reverse. 

We cannot always update the images to reflect our current stock and therefore advise that you contact us if you would like to have more information on your purchase. 

Photographs shown may not be the actual coin and may differ in terms of grade, die numbers, design flaws and other minor details. Contact us if you require a photograph prior to purchase.
