William & Mary, Stuart King & Queen 1688-1694

QVARTO edge. Conjoined Busts (side by side) facing right; reverse, the elaborate Royal Shield decorated with a seashell on either side, a style limited in use to this reign and one of the most beautiful of all reverses in the 5-guinea series.

An exceptionally well-preserved specimen with a bold strike on both sides as well as lovely reddish gold toning.
