Five Guineas : English Coins

Date Sold Category Lot Description Sale Price

Auction 156
English Coins 1693 Obverse conjoined busts of joint monarchs right.  GVLIELMVS ET MARIA DEI GRATIA.  Reverse, crowned garnished square topped arms, lion of Nassau in centre Elephant and Castle below the bust S3423. Edge year QVINTO in raised letters on edge, GEF rare thus, not far off in grade to our lot 857 in LCA 155 Dec 2016 which realised £71,500 hammer. But this piece, the Elephant and Castle variety, is usually more sought after. The famous Samuel King Five Guineas sale by Spink included their well researched analysis of Five Guineas offered for sale in a 40 year period and the 1693 E & C offered here had a frequency of 19 compared to 91 of the S3422 type (1693 without E & C below). Last year a 5 Guineas of this same type S3423 Elephant and Castle below in MS63 realised $258,000 in the USA. William and Mary were spouses who reigned over the kingdoms of England, Scotland and Ireland. They began their joint reign in February 1689 after they were offered the throne by the Convention Parliament. (Mary’s father) had fled the country and William and Mary occupied what was in effect a vacant throne.  They were the first joint rulers in England for over 800 years, although Philip II and had appeared on English coinage together.  Mary was to reign until her death from smallpox in December 1694 and William continued his rule alone, until his death in March 1702.  The reign of William and Mary was brief and their coins are relatively scarce, the piece offered here has a very competitive starting price and would truly be a bargain in todays market at the low estimate or in our opinion at several bids above.

English Coins 1693 Obverse conjoined busts of joint monarchs right.  GVLIELMVS ET MARIA DEI GRATIA.  Reverse, crowned garnished square topped arms, lion of Nassau in centre. Edge year QVINTO in raised letters on edge, GEF reverse better and crisply struck rare thus, prooflike and brilliant fields a piece with remarkable eye appeal, the bust and reverse design lightly frosted, retaining much mint lustre, must surely be one of the examples of this short series. Earlier this year a 5 Guineas in MS63 realised $258,000 and in our opinion this coin would be at least MS62 on the US grading scale. William and Mary were spouses who reigned over the kingdoms of England, Scotland and Ireland. They began their joint reign in February 1689 after they were offered the throne by the Convention Parliament. (Mary’s father) had fled the country and William and Mary occupied what was in effect a vacant throne.  They were the first joint rulers in England for over 800 years, although Philip II and had appeared on English coinage together.  Mary was to reign until her death from smallpox in December 1694 and William continued his rule alone, until his death in March 1702.  The reign of William and Mary was brief and their coins are relatively scarce.

English Coins 1701 Fine Work DECIMO TERTIO choice mint state with like fields, Ex Roderick Richardson and with his price ticket £75,000 "Choice Mint State" graded and encapsulated by CGS as 80 (UNC) so offered here having three companies (LCA, CGS and Richardson) concur on a mint state grade. In the 10 years since CGS has been grading coins only two other pre 1750 gold coins have an 80 grade those being a of 1725 and a Guinea of 1713, As for current market indicators Five Guineas in EF of can be seen on display at UK coin shows around the £45,000 marker and it was reported to us by the seller and an independent source corroborated that a 5 Guineas in NGC 61 sold at the March MSCF show for £78,000, the read across table compiled empirically by CGS collectors suggest that USA slabbed coins in MS61 average CGS 65 grade. Regardless of the technically grade and price this is a spectacular coin surely never to be matched for eye appeal and beauty.
