Great Britain, George III, Gold Half Guinea, 1801

This beautiful solid gold coin is a favourite amoungst numismatists, this is your chance to grab one at a very low price. The gold price might fluctuate wildly, but gold coins with a history retain their value and make a better deal than coin bullion or jewellery.

Our coin is from the turn of the 19th century, 1801: Great Britain forms a union with Ireland to become the United Kingdom, the London Stock Exchange was founded, the population was 8.9 million and London had only 860,000 residents! William Pitt the Younger resigned as Prime Minister and Henry Addington was elected. Nelson is made a Viscount.

Our coin's obverse, from the third coinage, is a laureate bust of George III facing right, has the legend GEORGIVS III DEI GRATIA. The reverse shows the royal coat of arms surrounded by a crowned royal garter, with an outer inscription which reads, BRITANNIARUM REX FIDEI DEFENSOR. There is a small amount of damage to the edge, the coin weighs 4.16g and is made from .917 gold.

George III, Silver, Bank of England Dollar, 1804
This was an emergency issue produced by the Bank of England by re-striking Spanish-American 8 Reales until at least 1811. The coin was worth 5 shillings and then revalued to 5s 6d in 1811. 
There are various varieties, this coin shows the laureate head of George with the top leaf to the left side of E and an upright K to left of shield. Few light scratches and two (?) test marks to left (or possibly the underlying reale which makes it more valuable, I wouldn't like to say!).
