Saudi Arabia History

Saudi Arabia was formed in 1932 by the amalgamation of the smaller states of Nejd, Al Hasa, Hejaz, and Asir. Only a small number of different gold coin designs, five, have ever been issued by the country.

Saudi Guineas

Minted by the Saudi Arabian Royal mint, this trade guinea has the same dimensions and gold content as the British sovereign.  This is an attractive alternative for investors looking to buy gold bullion coins with artistic and numismatic interest. These coins are dated on the Islamic Hejira calendar as 1370, which corresponds to October 13th 1950 to October 1st 1951 on the Christian Gregorian calendar.


The Edge is reeded.


The obverse bears a calligraphic design set inside a beaded outer circle, crossed swords and palm trees are featured below the main design at the bottom of the coin.

The text reads:

ملك المملكة العربية السعودية
عبد العزيز بن عبد الرحمن بن فيصل آل سعود

Which translates to:

King of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
'Abd al-'Aziz bin 'Abd al-Rahman bin Faisal Al Sa'ud


A calagraphic inscription within a beaded circle with legend above and the Islamic date below.

The text reads:

جنيه عربي سعودي
ضرب في المكرّمة مكة

Which translates to:

Saudi Arabian Pound
Struck in the Holy City of Mecca
