Post-Union crowned cruciform shields, sceptres in angles, garter star at centre, date either side of top crown, abbreviated Latin legend and toothed border surrounding, .MAG BRI. FR ET.

The Latin legends translate to on obverse "Anne by the Grace of God," and abbreviated on the reverse as "Queen of Great Britain, France and Ireland."

The 1714 calendar year had an output of £1,313,07 worth of gold struck into coin. This figure includes the 'Prince Elector' Guinea of George I struck in the same year. The exact number breakdown of both is therefore unknown.

Provenance:

Ex Ellerby Hoard, Spink Auction 22027, 7th of October 2022, Lot 182.

The Ellerby Hoard was the numismatic find of 2022 and has been more fully written up with its amazing results in Coin News December 2022 pages 40-43 by John Andrew.
