The Guinea
The first guinea was struck under the reign of Charles II, when it was worth 1 or 20 shillings - considerably less than it's worth now! During its circulation, the coin's value changed based on the gold fluctuations, however it wasn't until 1717 when the master of the mint, Sir Isaac Newton, set it's price at 21 shillings. The last guinea was struck in 1813.
