Comments

The standard weight of this coin was 1/62 troy ounce or 7.7 grains.

Before the Great Recoinage of 1817, there is no known evidence to suggest that separate 'prooflike' strikes were issued for the Maundy ceremony, suggesting that the money handed out was identical to the circulating coinage at that time.
