Maundy Thursday – or Holy or Good Thursday – falls each year on the day before Good Friday. Recognized throughout the Christian world, it commemorates the night before the crucifixion of Christ, when he gathered his disciples together for the Last Supper

As far back as 597 AD Saint Augustine refers to the day… but the origin of Maundy Thursday traces right back to that very night Christ gathered his disciples… and gave them the Novum Mandatum – Latin for New Mandate, or as we say, New Commandment.

A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. John 13: 34-35

But before that command was given, Christ washed the feet of each of the disciples. It is through this act of love and service, and spiritual purification, that Christ prepared his disciples for the New Commandment – the call to service and love of each other and their fellow men.

So from St. Augustine’s day to the present, Christians have gathered for ceremonial foot washing on Maundy Thursday – but it is the British tradition that has led to some of the most treasured of Maundy offerings… the silver coins known the world over as “Maundy Money.”

Beautiful patina and toning. 

Fun Fact: This is the first Maundy Money coin date (1838) to be issued by Queen Victoria.

Royal Maundy & Royal Maundy Money At a Glance:

  • Who: The reigning British monarch and specially chosen recipients
  • What: A ceremony where at first, the poor were given food, clothing and other items, and later silver coins. Now, specially chosen service volunteers are honored each Maundy Thursday.
  • When: Since the 4th Century, but with King John (1199-1213) being the first to distribute silver coins
  • Where: For centuries, the Royal Maundy service was held in London – and was held in Westminster Abbey for 60 years. Now, it is held in a different city each year.
  • Why: To demonstrate that like Christ, it is the monarch’s solemn duty to serve and love their subjects (since 1949, citizens).

While King John (1199 - 1213) distributed the silver coins of the realm on that Thursday centuries ago, over the centuries Maundy Money has transformed into specially minted coin sets that are as prized as they are symbolic and beautiful.

And while the coins have changed over time, the Royal Maundy ceremony still starts with: A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. 

Maundy coins are precious… they are minted by command of the monarch, and no other coins have such a direct connection to the reigning king or queen. Now distributed to those who exemplify love through service, they are given to men and women who have lived a life of devotion to service and church causes and charities.

The coin you now see here has a storied history… and now it will continue its journey with you, as a shining testament to faith and tradition.
