The Spade Guinea Shield
The Guinea was first struck in 1663 for King Charles II, and was a symbol of Britain's rising colonial power, as it became recognized and accepted throughout the world. The Guinea was known for its purity and reliability, and the Five Guinea coin even had the engraving "Decus et Tutamen," meaning "an Ornament and a Safeguard," further securing its symbol as a reliable coin.

The Spade Guinea design was first introduced in 1787 by King George III, and symbolizes England and Scotland, France, Ireland and the German possession of the Hanoverian dynasty. Scotland and England were merged to form Great Britain, which is represented by three lions that symbolize England, Normandy and Aquitaine and the standing lion which represents Scotland. The Royal Arms also had the Arms of France until 1801, which is represented with three gold fleurs-de-lis on blue background, symbolizing the king's approved right to rule. The Ireland coat of arms is symbolized by a gold harp with silver strings. The Hanover coat of arms included an addition in 1714 of a galloping horse on the lowest part, representing Hanover. The English and Scottish lions remained side by side. These four coat of arms join together to create the Spade Guinea design featured on this coin.

The East India Company
The historic East India Company is one of the most well-known companies historically, increasing trade among Europe and Asia. Many commodities were traded through the East India Company, including silk, spices, tea and cotton. The historic East India company disbanded in the 1800s, however the name was revitalized for The East India Company London, bringing a re-imagined company that sells fine teas and food, and produces collectible coins such as this silver proof coin.
