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 ?

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.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

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
