Coins 728x90

A shitty modern silver fantasy "maundy set". You used to see them in droves in the salerooms but they have dried up lately.

I have the shilling if anyone wants to buy it off me?

The portrait is by Raphael Maklouf who also did the obverse with the coupe portrait between 85 and 97.

I have a gold set that I picked up as a curiosity. I wish I knew more about them as I've only ever seen one other set and have no idea of the gold content.

I think London Coins have sold a few various sets. I seem to remember the shilling is sterling, but I was collecting monarchs and it filled a gap and was fun at the time. I don't recall much paperwork with it, I just stuck it in a capsule. I'll have to see what details I can find. The portrait really isn't very good!

As you are aware Tom I am a complete novice what would such a "shilling" go for ?

I think I paid about £30 for it. I was more impulsive in those days!

And did I end up buying it when you sold your milled shillings?!

I've got one of these Edward fantasy Maundy sets that I got with a large collection from Belgium recently. Didn't Coincraft have something to do with them originally?

Anyone want it? £25 seems fair. They are quite pretty for what they are.

I took my gold set into coincraft when visiting the BM on the off chance they might know something about them. They didn't.

I know this is not a buy/sell thread but would like one of the crowns if somebody has one....As much as I love shillings, I have to pass; still can't get charged up about even legitimate Maundy sets.
