Maundy coins as bracelet: still coins ?
« on: December 01, 2016, 12:59:05 AM »

I recently bought an amazing bracelet made with 1911,1912, 1913,1914 maundy money. It is very beautiful in my eyes and I didn't have to pay the moneys it says these sets are worth - about 200$ each - check at http://www.coins-of-the-uk.co.uk/values/maund.html

But as this is made into bracelet and even after soldiering on coins; coins are absolutely brilliant conditions. Does this have any collector value - some value or no value ?

No value to a collector at all. As jewelry, maybe.

They are all holed, so of little or no numismatic interest, but it's up to you what strikes your interest. If you plan to continue their use as jewellery, I would suggest that you have the large ring replaced by something that prevents the coins from clanging into each other.

Hi peter,
Coins are not holed byt there is white metal soldering on them - I am not sure if these can be freed from this solder metal but yes, it is very pretty to see and I have no plan for its use.

Thanks
