Lot description:


George II (1727-60), gold Guinea, 1745, intermediate laureate head left, no LIMA hallmark below, legend and toothed border surrounding, GEORGIUS. II. DEI. GRATIA., rev. crowned quartered shield of arms, date either side of crown, abbreviated Latin legend, M.B.F.ET.H. REX. F. D. B. ET. L. D. S. R. I. A. T. ET. E, (Schneider 590; MCE 319; S.3678). Toned with some residual lustre, some short hairline scratches on portrait, particularly the neckline, possibly once mounted, otherwise good very fine.

The Latin legends translate to on obverse "George II by the Grace of God" continuing on the reverse in abbreviated Latin which if in shown in full reads "Magnae Britanniae Franciae et Hiberniae Rex Fidei Defensor Brun et Lunebergen-sis Dux, Sacri Romani Imperii Archi-Thesaurius et Elector" and translates as "King of Great Britain, France and Ireland, Defender of the Faith, Duke of Brunswick and Luneberg, High Treasurer and Elector of the Holy Roman Empire."

The Mint output of gold in 1745 was £292,866 which was nearly thirty times the year before as the latter part of the year was boosted by the LIMA coinage from captured treasures from the New World, however those coins were marked with LIMA below the bust and the non-LIMA coins like we have here dated 1745 are just as difficult to find. William Chetwynd was the new Master-Worker at this time since the year before this coin was made and John Sigismund Tanner was the Chief Engraver.
(£1,500-£2,000)
