The gold guinea coins introduced by the Kingdom of England in 1663 would go on to become one of the most well-known forms of gold currency around the globe through the late-17th and 18th centuries. The immediate precursor to the Great Britain Sovereigns introduced in 1817 and still in production today, the gold guinea was available from 1663 to 1799.

Gold guineas were the first machine-produced gold coins from England. The guinea was introduced in 1663 with the restoration of the monarchy and the reign of King Charles II. The coins would gain wider use during the reigns of the Hanoverian monarchs, with King George III widely associated with the guinea as his was the longest reign during which the gold guinea was issued. The last gold guineas were produced for circulation in 1799.
