George II Lima 5 Guinea Repro

Our friends made this crownsized replica of a King George II gold Five Guinea piece of 1746. It has the word ‘Lima’ under the bust that would have indicated that the gold used to strike the originals, was stolen from the Spanish, at Lima, Peru. That was a way of the British thumbing their nose at the Spanish. It is a beautiful replica, crownsized, plated in gold and in Proof condition. Each piece comes in a protective capsule. Today an original coin in this condition would cost at least £50,000-£100,000. If you are willing to accept a very nice replica, you can have one for far more affordable price.

George II Lima Halfcrown Fine

Spain, during the reign of King George II was the wealthiest nation in the world. This came about because of the silver and gold that it was taking out of South America. Of course, that precious metal had to make it from South America to Spain. There were many pirates who plundered the Spanish ships, taking the precious silver and gold away from the Spanish. In 1745 and 1746 the British Government decided to tweak the noise of the Spanish. Not only did they steal silver from them, but the British then decided to strike coins proclaiming what they had done. So they issued a silver Halfcrown with the word Lima below the King’s bust to tell everyone where the silver came from. A great way to make friends. These Halfcrowns of King George II are dated 1745 or 1746; they are in Fine condition and have ‘Lima’ below the King’s bust. A nice piece of ‘pirate treasure’.
