|EDWARD VII SILVER PENNY
|Edward VII silver pennies where not intended for circulation
but were issued as a part of "maundy" money.
Maundy money where used traditionally by the Monarch to
distribute to the poor people in a parish.
The maundy sets consisted of a silver four pence, a silver
threepence, a silver twopence and a silver penny.
Traditionally the number of poor people given these sets
during a maundy ceremony was equal to the same years as
the sovereign's life .
A matt finish proof silver penny was issued along with the
regular maundy silver penny for 1902 only.
