The Elizabeth II 1958 Maundy Set is a numismatic treasure composed of four silver coins – fourpenny, threepenny, twopenny and one penny pieces – all from the same year. This set is a rare collection of official Maundy pieces, traditionally presented in an undated case. The tradition of British monarchs distributing Maundy money began in 1662 during the reign of Charles II when undated hammered coins were bestowed upon recipients. In 1670, the practice evolved into issuing dated sets featuring all four coins. 

It is worth noting that the Maundy money has maintained a remarkable consistency since 1670, as the coins used in the Maundy service are still struck in 925 sterling silver. The 1958 release features a youthful portrait of the Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse, expertly depicted by Mary Gillick. The reverse side boasts a crowned numeral encircled by a wreath, a design with historical roots that can be traced back to the reign of William III and Mary II.
