Victoria seemed the obvious answer to this decision, being that a Maundy coin is not a coin intended for circulation and that the twopences are ridiculously small.


However, G W De Saulles actually did wonders with the Edward VII obverse. Most people will wonder why i say that. The truth of it is a photograph will never do the obverse justice. On a high grade specimen like that when you see it in person the beard details are superb, especially when viewed at an angle.


I was never all that keen on the Brock portrait of her Majesty either. Thus unusually i went for Edward.
