It was the first English machine-struck gold coin.
The first guinea was produced on 6 February 1663. On the day 27th March 1663 the coin was confirmed legal currency. The reverse shows a Shield similar to previous designs except the order of the shields is England,Scotland, France, Ireland, and Hanover.
King George I was identified for having five different portraits during his rein for the guinea coin. One guinea coin that is just as appealing is the 1714 coin, which is known for declaring him to be Prince Elector of the Holy Roman Empire. King George had his Coronation in October 1714 and was the first monarch of the House of Hanover to take the British throne.
In 1708 he was announced as prince elector of Hanover.
This Guinea coin is the fifth head portrait
