Why Britain’s most extravagant coin is getting harder to find than ever

• The Rose Guinea – widely considered the most extravagant and luxurious British coins ever struck

• Well over 200 years old

• Getting harder to find following the bicentenary of the 1816 Recoinage Act when the Guinea was replaced by the Sovereign

• Struck in 22 Carat Gold, it is larger and heavier than the Sovereign

• One of the most recognisable and sought-after British Gold coins


Why I recommend the 1763 - 1786 George III Rose Guinea…

The ‘Rose’ Guinea is considered one of the most extravagant and luxurious British coins ever struck, with its reverse shield design bearing resemblance to an open rose.

2017 saw the bicentenary of the modern Sovereign. The Guinea is the precursor to the Sovereign, being replaced by it in 1816. The focus on the Sovereign has led to increased collector demand for the Guinea.

And this, with its iconic design, was already one of the most recognisable and sought-after British Gold coins.
