    George III Military Guinea (1813)

    £3,500.00

    GOLD. 1813 George III, Military Guinea. In 1813 a one- year type guinea was struck to pay Wellington's army on the Pyrenees, as the local populace would accept only gold for purchases.

    The issue was 80,000 pieces, and the gold for the issue was imported from India in the form of gold mohur and pagodacoins.

    The coin has become known as the 'military guinea' and was the last guinea to be struck. This particular coin isin EF condition and still possesses some of its original mint lustre.

    Henry won the throne when he defeated Richard Ill at the Battle of Bosworth Field. He was the last king of England to win his throne on the field of battle. He was successful in restoring the power and stability of the English monarchy after the political upheavals of the Wars of the Roses He founded a long-lasting dynasty and was peacefully succeeded by his son, Henry VIII after a reign of nearly 24 years.

    Although Henry can be credited with the restoration of political stability in England, and a number of commendable administrative, economic and diplomatic initiatives, the latter part of his reign was characterised by a financial rapacity which stretched the bounds of legality.

    27mm, 4.43g. GVF - Good Very Fine, well struck, light hair-line scratch before face 

    Not very rare but a very nice example — usually weakly struck this piece has a well struck portrait with although some of the legends are as little weak - also very nice even light toning thus a desirable piece.

    In 1619 there was a currency reform and new 20 and 10 shillings pieces were reduced in weigh making the former coins worth 22 and 11 shillings.

    To make it easy to differentiate between the two coins this new lighter coin was issued with James facing left - the other direction — and wearing a laurel wreath rather than a crown.

    Consequently they became known as a 'Laurels' and 'Half laurels'.

    As well as being Portuguese, these gold coins were also used in the early Australian settlement of New South Wales due to the acute need of current coin.

    On the 19th of November 1800 a Government Proclamation was made in Sydney legalising certain foreign coins as acceptable currency within the Colony and fixing a sterling value to them.

    This coin was fixed at E4 and was called a 'Joanna' because of the latinised name of the previous Portuguese monarch whose coins were most commonly met with. It was some 25 years later that Britain eventually sorted this problem out by ensuring that the colony had sufficient British coin. For the first quarter of the 19th century these 4 escudo pieces of Portugal was also legal tender in Australia as E4 pieces! Maria I (1734 — 1816) was Queen of Portugal, Brazil, and the Algarves. Known as Maria the Pious (in Portugal), or Maria the Mad (in Brazil), she was the first undisputed Queen regnant of Portugal.

    With Napoleon's European conquests and at the urging of the British government, on 29 November 1807, the entire Braganza dynasty decided to flee to Brazil to establish a Cortes-in-exile, in the Portuguese Viceroyalty of Brazil. Along with the Royal Family, she was transported aboard the nau Principe Real.

    During her move from the Royal palace to the docks she was heard screaming throughout the trip, in the middle of the crowd and in the carriage.

    The Queen's dementia was so great that she feared that she was going to be tortured or robbed during her movement by her servants.

    On 1 August 1808, the British General Arthur Wellesley (later Duke of Wellington) landed a British army in Lisbon and thus initiated the Peninsular War. Portuguese forces under British command distinguished themselves in the defence of the lines of Torres Vedras (1809—1810) and in the subsequent invasion of Spain and France. In 1815, Prince Regent Joäo government elevated Brazil to the status of a kingdom, and Maria I was proclaimed the Queen of the United Kingdom of Portugal, Brazil and the Algarves.

    When Napoleon was finally defeated in 1815, Maria and her family remained in Brazil.

    Very handsome coin of this first Brazilian queen and scarce date.
