MULTIPLE SET CASES

Unique ???   --------------    Leather Maundy Case with arms of Queen Victoria stamped in gold on this red leather case.   The inside is plush blue with blue satin.


The case holds 15 Maundy sets and is undated. This is from my personal collection.





I am informed from somebody that originally owned this case that it contained maundy sets from 1888-1902 inclusive. All with a matching toneing. Such a shame that the coins have been separated from the case.

Was the original collection of sets a gift to an Almoner with 15 years service?. The Royal Mint museum curator suggested this may be the case but could not throw any further light on the matter.

Elizabeth 11 Royal Mint case - current day issue.

Cases are metal framed 76mm x 76mm.Inside most of the cases the coins are displayed in a hard , square , accrilic capsule 63mm x 63mm containing a black alveo insert..

The sets packed in this way are intended for sale to Buckingham Palace, HM Tresury , the Bank of England  and certain members of staff at the Royal Mint.

Sets of coins were also ordered by the Royal Almonry for helpers at the maundy ceremony.. The same type of red case is used for these sets but the coins inside are contained in squares of soft plastic rather than in the acrylic capsule and black alveo.
