More Info

The guinea was introduced into the British coinage in 1663 under Charles II, and continued until 1813 in the reign of George III.

At least six different types of guinea were issued for George III, from 1761 to 1813, including the well-known spade (or spade ace) version.

Obverse

The obverse of the coin features the fourth laureate portrait of King George III.

Designed by engraver Richard Yeo, the engraving shows the king facing to the right with the inscription: 

"GEORGIUS III DEI GRATIA"

Reverse

The reverse of the coin shows the crowned ornate shield. The design earned the coin the nickname of Guinea "Rose Shield" thanks to the ornate embelishments surounding the crowned shield of arms.
