    Why is this not on the banner yet, if sold in the USA, this is a $3000+ Coin!

    Hi Unicorn,
    I'd hate parting with anything I find and if its not pronounced 'treasure trove' then there's no cause to. Finds like the 2 Roman hoards and the Henry III silver penny hoard obviously are treasure and the British Museum will give me and the farmer the "reward" for finding them and the finds will be displayed in the museum. A single coin like this though gives me more pleasure in being able to hold it in my hand rather than having its value in today's money in my back pocket! So no, it won't be sold x

    Very nice find! Who is the monarch on the obverse? Is that George the 1st?

    "... Once in a life time..." Hope not Jimmy, just one more would be nice, a 1699 one perhaps, with the 'elephant and castle' below the bust!

    Incredible find David!! A pre-1800 gold coin has always been #1 on my most wanted list, and your find gives me some hope and inspiration that it can actually happen. Great going!!

    I have never heard of, read of, seen a William III Guinea dug EVER, factor in the better than average condition, & the number of votes, I don't get why the banner is broke

    EVERYONE:
    If you haven't voted, you need to, because if you get one of these, I know you would think all your X-mas's had come at once. Dad & I have had 18 Gold Coins, many of mine are on the banner, but only 1 of them comes close to the value of this one & when I say close I mean 1000 (so not very).
    This is one I would be very happy to put in the collection, but probably couldn't afford to give the owner money to keep (A mixed blessing).
