King George III 1797-1813 Gold Third Guinea
King George III was the first of the Hanoverians to be born in England, his legacy is often over-shadowed by the bouts of madness he suffered in his later years. However, the events and achievements of his reign – Trafalgar and Waterloo among them – stand as a testament to an era that saw Britain become the dominant power in Europe.
He is the ONLY monarch to product coins in both Guinea and Sovereign coinages – in fact, Britain went onto the Gold Standard during his reign. Only a few monarchs have had reigns as significant as this in the history of British coinage.
Hattons of London are proud to be able to offer collectors a rare chance to own this King George III 1797-1813 Gold Third Guinea.
Minted only during the reign of George III, the Third Guinea was struck from 1797 to 1813 only and the third guinea was ONLY minted by King George III – only King George III and Queen Elizabeth have gold coins that are unique to their reigns.
