Elizabeth II, Maundy Set 2006
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 are usually given out by the Monarch on Maundy Thursday. Here we offer the 2006 Queen Elizabeth II Maundy Set. Normally we charge £245 for a Queen Elizabeth II Maundy Set, these are Choice Proof sets and, as a Special, either date can be yours for only £220 which saves you £25.
