Ponterio sale 176, lot 20316
GB 1804 half guinea rev P176-20316.jpg

This specimen was lot 20316 in Ponterio sale 176 (Chicago, August 2013), where it sold for $940. The catalog description[1] noted, "GREAT BRITAIN. George III, 1760-1820. Half-Guinea, 1804. NGC MS-62. Seventh laureate bust, short hair, right. Rv. Crowned quartered shield with arms. This bust type features a very different portrait in the classical, Roman style. Fully struck on both sides. Only petty surface marks are noted, making this a bit conservatively graded. Ex: Sotheby’s, 1981." This type was struck 1804-13, presumably to pay soldiers and sailors during the Napoleonic Wars. Domestically, Great Britain operated on paper Bank of England notes; the gold standard would not be resumed until after Waterloo. The reform of 1817 terminated all guinea-denominated issues in favor of the sovereign. As the guinea was 21 shillings, this coin would have been ten shillings, six pence.

Recorded mintage: unknown but not rare.

Specification: 4.17 g, .917 fine gold, .123 troy oz AGW.

Catalog reference: S-3737; Fr-364; KM-651.
