2016 Guinea Bicentennial Silver Proof 1oz Coin
Only 250 available
The Guinea has perhaps the richest historical background of any British coin, and its significance throughout the British Empire makes it a collector's favourite.
Now 200 YEARS since it was taken out of circulation, the East India Company has released a special 1oz silver coin to commemorate this Bicentenary year.
The foundation of the British Empire
At its peak over half of all global trade was managed by The East India Company. It laid the foundations of the British Empire and its trading success was founded on the Guinea, so it’s only right that they have minted this special commemorative issue.
Struck to a flawless Proof finish from 1oz of 999/1000 fine silver, this stunning coin features 24-carat gold leaf highlights and a reverse design inspired by the last circulating Guineas struck under King George III.
Your coin will also arrive ready to display in its own luxury presentation case with a certificate of authenticity.
A remarkable coin… and a remarkably low edition limit
Surprisingly, The East India Company has struck just 10,000 coins, and demand has already been staggering. We have only been able to secure 250 coins - a tiny 2.5% of the entire edition limit.
A worldwide edition limit of 10,000 surely won't be enough to satisfy demand for this modern interpretation of a coin so deeply rooted in British history.
Our allocation of 250 coins will soon be gone so please don't delay your order!
