New Silver Maundy 10 Pence Coin Denomination? - Fake News?

Recommended Posts

I recently posted about the 2022 Maundy Money ceremony being held at St. George's Chapel, Windsor, today.

I quoted a news article, without reading in in full, only to be alerted to a typical journalistic or news media mistake.

In some cases, it seems that just one journalist has misunderstood, but sometimes the mistake gets replicated hundreds or thousands of times, in which case, I always wonder how, where, when, and by who the original misinformation originated.

I did a Google search for "Maundy money — silver 10p and 3p pieces", with the quote marks, and got this:

I'm not an expert on Maundy coins, being American.  But journalist often get technical facts wrong.  My understanding is it is still 1,2,3,and 4p coins.  Don't have any.  And,no, I don't support Trump.  But I fear we'll see that orange faced wannabe dictator again.

Yes it is 1p, 2p, 3p and 4p coins - prior to 1971 they were pre-decimal pence so 1d, 2d, 3d and 4d. But the coins were revalued at decimalisation converting to new pence (p). However, since I don't collect decimal coinage, I've never had to think about Maundy coins in modern pence, it just looks wrong.
