The problem with Maundy Sets is finding a case to hold the four small coins and once you have found a case how do you store it? Well Coincraft has come up with a unique solution. We have had special holders made exclusively for Coincraft to hold a Maundy Set. Once the coins are in the holder you just place the holder in a tray or box along with your other coins. The dimensions of the capsule are 49x49x6mm.
Now the cost of dies and production was quite high, but it is a unique solution to the problem of how to store your Maundy Sets. Only Coincraft has this unique holder for sale, as they were made only for us.
When the Royal Mint strikes coins, they strike them in three different qualities. The Proof coins for
the Proof Sets, the Specimen coins for the Mint Sets and the Uncirculated for actual usage. The
ones that are most difficult to get are the real Uncirculated coins. We have tried bank after bank and they
just don’t have Uncirculated coins available. Perhaps the Royal Mint wants to protect their striking of
Specimen and Proof Sets.
The real Uncirculated set on offer, that is coins that were actually struck for usage by the public and not
for inclusion into sets is dated 1997. You get the Uncirculated 50p, 20p, 10p, 5p, 2p and 1p, the coins are
Brilliant Uncirculated with the occasional bag mark, but these coins were struck to be used and as such
are extremely difficult to get.
These were the last coins struck with the so-called Maklouf bust of the Queen on them. A very difficult
set to get.
This is something that everyone will
want, either for themselves or as a
present, but there is a limit of 2

In 2007 it was the 30th anniversary
of the death of Elvis
Presley. Benham in Folkestone
issued four special covers with
their ‘silk’ pictures on them.
Each cover has a different photo

Office attached to each a first
class stamp with a colour reproduction
of the photo on the cover.

These are fantastic Treasure coins. They were struck in Birmingham for the East India Company
and sent to India by ship. Unfortunately the ship they were on, The Admiral Gardner, was sunk
on the Goodwin Sands.
About 25 years ago it was discovered and salvaged. The coins are copper and dated 1808. Over the

coins tend to have weathered the sands better. The 20 Cash seem to be alright on one side and very
worn on the other side.
