George I Guinea

This is number three from a group of four coins belonging to Clint Baker. It’s a guinea of George I, which is dated 1722 on the reverse.

A number of different busts appear on the obverse of George I guineas. This one features the fourth bust of the man chosen by Parliament to be the first German King of England. He couldn’t speak English, which Parliament probably saw as advantageous as he wouldn’t be able to interfere in MP’s business.

Valuation

On the obverse there is a scuff at the base of the hair and the laurel wreath is slightly weak but this side is otherwise in about VF condition. The reverse is better and would grade VF.

It’s a very nice looking coin but the slight defects on the obverse would reduce my pre-sale auction estimate to £1,000 – £1,200.
