Maundy Purse.

Recommended Posts

Has anyone here seen one of these?

We were at a friend's house the other day and, knowing I'm into coins,  he showed me this blue purse containing at full set of four 1901 maundy coins. It belonged to an aunt but no one knows how she came to own it/them. I've not seen a purse like this before but do know the coins would have originally been distributed in little drawstring bags.

A full set. Apologies for sloppy typing.

First I've seen of something like that - I too thought they came in little draw string bags.

How many came in each bag anyway? I've never been able to figure out the monarch's age relating to the number of coins because sets of four are a thing but unequal numbers have been made in some years.
