|There is only one obverse and one reverse design
issued for the two guineas of William & Mary.
The reverse of the William & Mary two guineas like the
other gold coins of this series was a totally a new design
unlike any before or after until George II. Instead of the
more traditional four shield design separated by four
sceptres it has all the shields in one ornamental shield
or garter with a single crown above.
The William & Mary two guineas was only minted for
three years 1691, 1693 & 1694 and every year can be
found with the elephant and castle mark.
The Elephant and castle below bust donates that the
gold used came from the Africa Company.
No guineas were minted at local provincial mints.
