Usage examples for guinea
It occurred at the latter end of the year 1811 or at the beginning of the year 1812, at the time when there was such a desperate attempt made to impose upon the public, by endeavouring to persuade them that a one pound note and a shilling, were equivalent to a guinea although the latter was selling in the market at the time for twenty- seven shillings. – Memoirs of Henry Hunt, Esq. Volume 3 by Henry Hunt
It's a guinea a ticket: I'll take one, and you can take one, and if I win I'll pay you back your guinea for then I shall get a horse worth a hundred guineas for two guineas; and if you win, you can either keep the mare or hand her over to me, and I will pay you back your guinea – Amos Huntingdon by T.P. Wilson
