Guineas
The guinea was a coin of approximately one quarter ounce of gold that was minted in Great Britain
Great Britain
between 1663 and 1814.[1] The name came from the Guinea region in West Africa, where much of the gold used to make the coins originated.[2] It was the first English machine-struck gold coin, originally worth one pound sterling,[1] equal to twenty shillings, but rises in the price of gold relative to silver caused the value of the guinea to increase, at times to as high as thirty shillings. From 1717 to 1816, its value was officially fixed at twenty-one shillings. When Britain adopted the gold standard the guinea became a colloquial or specialised term. Although no longer circulated, the term guinea survives as a unit of account in some fields. Notable usages include horse racing,[1] and in the sale of rams to mean an amount of one pound and one shilling (21 shillings) or one pound and five pence (£1.05) in decimalised currency
