BullionByPost are proud to offer this very collectable, William III Half-Guinea, dated 1695. Also known as William of Orange, William the third came to the throne through 'The Glorious Revolution'; in which he sailed 463 ships and 14,000 men into Torbay harbour, then doubled his force as he marched on London to depose the unpopular James II. Although his reign started in 1689, 1695 is the first year in which William III appears on UK coinage in his own right; in the years before he had ruled as co-regent with his wife (and cousin) Mary II who had the stronger claim to the crown being the daughter or James II.

Obverse
Laureate bust facing right surrounded by the text 'GVLIELMVS III DEI GRA.'

Reverse
Crowned cruciform shields of the Royal Arms, representing England, Scotland, Ireland and France. Text reads 'MAG BR FRA ET HIB REX' - meaning 'King of Great Britain, France and Ireland'.
