||Anne gold 2 Guineas 1711, S-3569, Post-Union shield reverse, XF45 NGC. A very scarce denomination from this reign, as only one style was coined during the period 1709-1714, with this example being from the second year of issue. Even wear is seen on each side. This coin is nicely balanced in detail, with an especially appealing royal shield. Old-time gold patina graces the surfaces. As a rule, the "double guinea" is rarer than the guinea coin but is not nearly as popular.
