Elizabeth II, Maundy Set 2000

The issuing of Maundy coins goes back to the reign of Charles II, but, at the time, the coins were used as everyday money. It was not till later in the reign of King George III that actual sets of Maundy coins were issued. A Maundy set consists of four silver coins of 1d, 2d, 3d and 4d all of the same date. They were usually given out by the Monarch on Maundy Thursday. Normally we charge £245 for a Queen Elizabeth II Maundy Set, these are Choice Proof sets and, but as a Special offer, either it can be yours for only £220.

Picture of Constantinople Comm (Almost Extremely Fine)

Constantinople Comm (Almost Extremely Fine)

This is one of a handful of very interesting commemorative issues struck by Constantine the Great. The type offered here is one of the two more affordable types and was made for the founding of Constantinople in A.D. 330. They are made from bronze and show the Goddess of the city, ‘Constantinopolis’, in a helmet and war gear on the obverse. The reverse shows the goddess of Victory on the prow of a ship holding a sceptre and shield. This is to symbolise the port being captured using ships by Constantine’s son, Crispus. On a small amount of these reverses, the prow will be facing towards Victory, this is because the engravers making the designs didn’t realise the goddess was meant to be on the ship! There are enough variations in mintmarks and the styles of the designs on these to form a collection of these types alone. But the most interesting about these coins is how well they have survived! At this time bronze coins would circulate so heavily that it is very hard to find them in a good grade. We have a small collection of this commemorative from 1600 years ago in this exceptional almost Extremely Fine grade.
