Some of the rarest Queen Victoria coins you will ever see...

• Own an original set of Queen Victoria Maundy Money

• The Maundy Ceremony can be traced back to the time of Christ from the commandment given after washing the feet of his disciples on the day before Good Friday and has evolved from washing the feet of the poor to the gifting of money

• Maundy Money was first gifted by Charles II in 1662 with an undated issue of hammered coins before a dated set of coins first appeared in 1670

• The coins are also issued by The Royal Mint in small quantities – less than 4,500 per year in Victorian times

• Never issued for general circulation, the coins have remained much the same since, with a 1p, 2p, 3p and 4p struck in Sterling Silver



Why I recommend Queen Victoria Young Head Maundy Money…

These coins are some of the rarest Queen Victoria coins you will ever see.

Maundy Money is part of a ceremony that sees the Queen personally hand out coins to a tiny number of chosen recipients each year on the day before Good Friday.

But the demand for them was so strong in the 1800s that the bank started issuing replica sets in small numbers, with even Queen Victoria herself requesting pieces for her private use.

Maundy coins are amongst the rarest Victorian coins you can find because:

  1. They were never issued for general circulation
  2. Their mintage numbers are so low
  3. Demand for them has been high since the day they were issued

In short, they are everything a “Classic” coin should be.
