George III, 1813 Military Guinea Paperweight

In 1813 they struck the last Guinea ever, it was shortly to be replaced by the Sovereign. They were struck to pay English troops advancing into France and thus called The Military Guinea. This is a beautiful Proof rendition of that last ever ‘Military’ Guinea of 1813. You have the bust of King George III on the obverse wearing a laurel wreath the reverse has a crowned coat of arms. It has been gold plated and comes in a protective capsule. This is the first time that we have been able to offer these large paperweights. They were made years ago and ‘lost’ in our friend’s warehouse until now. They will never be made again and we think they are fantastic.
