5 Guineas - 1716 to 1726 - Price Guide

The 5 Guinea was the largest regularly produced gold coin in Britain. George I's 5 Guinea coins were only struck in 1716, 1717, 1720, and 1726, and they bear his abbreviated Hanoverian titles in addition to the usual British, French, and Irish title. George II's 5 Guinea pieces mark the last of the denomination. Some of the 1729 coins bear the initials EIC under the king's head, indicating the gold was supplied by the East India Company, while the 1746 coins have LIMA under the head, indicating the gold was obtained during Admiral Anson's circumnavigation of the world.
