Description

Charles II (1660-1685), Two-Guineas, 1682, large numeral puncheon used for the 2 in date, toothed outer borders both sides, second laureate head right with rounded truncation, legend reads from bottom left CAROLVS II DEI GRATIA. Rev, crowned cruciform shields, emblem-tipped sceptres in angles, five stringed Irish harp, interlocking royal monogram at centre in the form of connected C’s, date flanking top crown, legend surrounds MAG BR FRA ET HIB REX, no stop after HIB, edge milled, 16.71g (S.3335; EGC.220 – type .C/1a; MCE.46; Schneider II, 436).

A lustrously toned example with a subtle underlying mint bloom around the legends, surfaces and fields with a mirrored appearance, mainly in the outskirts of the flan but also visible as the coin draws into the portrait region. King’s hair evenly defined with the normal fade in the midsection, few surface markings, some haymarking either side of portrait. Rev, well struck up with residual lustre, few unobtrusive hairlines. Encapsulated and graded by NGC as AU58, rare, a strong example.
