Description

Each year at a ceremony on Easter Thursday the reigning British monarch distributes gifts of money to a small number of people in need. Since the 1820’s the money has consisted of coins that are specially struck by the Royal Mint for the personal use of the monarch.

This “Royal Maundy” money is struck in denominations of fourpence, threepence, twopence and penny, and always in silver.  In fact, the Royal Maundy is the only British coinage to have been struck every year since 1822.  However, King Edward VIII the “uncrowned king” reigned for such a short time that coinage was never produced bearing his portrait.

The Edward VIII Matt Proof Silver Maundy Pattern Set is a set of proposed Royal Maundy designs for King Edward VIII.   They are struck to the same size as his Royal Maundy coins would have been, and in pure .999 silver, and carry the portrait of the “uncrowned king”.  The coins are struck to Matt Proof standards, producing great depth of detail and sharpness in the design. Availability has been limited to just 999 sets, which is also in keeping with the very small mintage of Maundy coins that would have been officially minted for his use at the Maundy ceremony in 1936.
