Great Britain 1/2, 1, 2, and 5 Guineas 1702 to 1714

Great coin, Dennis. Remember:

NEVER CLEAN A COIN. CLEANING RUINS VALUE.

To figure value, first compute the base value due to gold content then add numismatic (collector) premium. Look up the current value of gold on web sites such as kitco.com and multiply by the gold content below to figure the base value. Then add numismatic premium. Since these coins are so old and so desirable, the numismatic premium is substantial

1/2 GUINEA, 20 mm diameter, 0.123 troy ounces gold
worn: add $200 numismatic premium
average circulated: add $900
well preserved: add $3000
1/2 guineas dated 1703 are especially rare, cataloging near $13000 in average circulated condition

1 GUINEA, 25 mm diameter, 0.246 troy ounces gold
worn: add $250 numismatic premium
average circulated: add $1500
well preserved: add $5000
guineas dated 1703 are especially rare, cataloging near $27000 in average circulated condition

2 GUINEAS, 30 mm diameter, 0.492 troy ounces gold
worn: add $500 numismatic premium
average circulated: add $3000
well preserved: add $8000

5 GUINEAS, 38 mm diameter, 1.231 troy ounces gold
worn: add $1500 numismatic premium
average circulated: add $5000
well preserved: add $14000
5 guineas dated 1703 are especially rare, cataloging near $65000 in average circulated condition

Many thanks (again) to Heritage for use of the amazing coin picture.

Also, be sure to read our Important Terminology page to understand what 'catalog value' means. Remember also that the modern coin market is flooded with counterfeits. Deal only with reputable people.
