VICTORIA SILVER PENNY
1838-1901
The Victoria silver penny is the smallest of the Victorian coinage.
Silver pennies were not in circulation in the Victorian era but were
still minted for a tradition known as Maundy Money, where the
Monarch gave poor people in a parish a silver four pence (groat),
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 .
