Description

George I (1714-27), Guinea, 1720, fourth laureate head right, legend surrounding GEORGIVS DG MBFE ET HIB REX F.D. Rev, crowned cruciform coat of arms, acknowledging the Arms of Hanover in the western shield, sceptres in angles, garter star at centre, date flanking top crown, reads BRVN ET L DVX SRIATH ET EL, edge grained, (S.3631; MCE 252; KM. 546.1; Fr-327).

Resplendent yellow gold toning, some unobtrusive surface marks, a die break in the second G of Georgivs, from the initial strike. Encapsulated and graded by NGC as AU55. [NGC item code : 4861 353-002].

With the accession of the House of Hanover, the coinage remained in essence the same, with the exception of adjustments to the Royal titles and the Royal Arms. The combined legend inscription translates to the following, ‘By the grace of God, King of Great Britain, France and Ireland, Defender of the faith, Duke of Brunswick and Luneberg, arch treasurer and Elector of the Holy Roman Empire.’
