This Charles II Premium Exclusive Set commemorates the House of Stuart, bringing together original coins from the reign of King Charles II and two modern releases. The historic coins in this set include the five-guinea, two-guinea, guinea and half-guinea, each bearing the coinage portrait of the third king of England from the House of Stuart.

The 2023-dated two-ounce and one ounce gold Proof coins are from our British Monarchs Collection, which seeks to showcase remastered coinage portraits of legendary British monarchs. The portrait of Charles II, found here as a reverse design, was inspired by the definitive effigy on the five-guinea piece, designed by John Roettier. The obverse of each 2023 coin in the set bears the official coinage portrait of His Majesty King Charles III, designed by Martin Jennings.

The guinea was one of the most important pre-decimal coins in British history and was the first to be introduced during the reign of Charles II. With a Limited Edition presentation of just one, this premium exclusive set provides one lucky collector with the chance to own a special piece of history.
