Royal Maundy is a religious service in the Church of  England held on Maundy Thursday, the day before Good Friday. At the service, the British Monarch or a royal official ceremonially distributes small silver coins known as "Maundy money" (legally, "the Queen's Maundy money") as symbolic alms to elderly recipients. The coins are legal tender but do not circulate because of their silver content and numismatic value. A small sum of ordinary money is also given in lieu of gifts of clothing and food that the sovereign once bestowed on Maundy recipients.

$35



GB, GEORGE I, 1723. Silver shilling.  Seaby 3647. South Sea Company (SSC) Average circulated, VG.

The South Sea Company, chartered in 1711, was granted a monopoly on trade with the Pacific region and South America. The Company's initial ventures, primarily dealing in slaves, did not prove adequately profitable, and in 1720 the directors conceived a grand plan- to assume the national debt and issue shares based on assumed revenue. Their stock offering touch off a national mania. Shares reached a high of 200 in July of that year, and hordes of imitators, most complete frauds, followed in their footsteps. One enterprising gentleman offered shares in "A company for carrying on an undertaking of great advantage, but nobody to know what it is", which promptly sold out. The collapse of the "Bubble" a few months later bankrupted many (even Sir Isaac Newton lost 20,000), and led to revelations of fraud, bribery, duplicitous accounting and a host of other corrupt business practices. The South Sea Company managed to pull through in greatly shrunken form, and in 1723 provided bullion to the Royal Mint for coining into silver coins, the metal probably coming from privateers employed in the Pacific.

GB 1811 Birmingham Workhouse Shilling.  4.55 grams, 25mm. View of the Workhouse. Old violet tone, near EF/EF. 

The old Workhouse in Birmingham was situated in Lichfield Steet just below the Assize Courts and was erected in 1733 at a cost of 1,173.  By the end of the eighteenth century it had been substantially enlarged having a left wing built as an infirmary and a right wing built as a place for labour.  The building was demolished in 1853 when the workhouse moved to Winson Green. 
In 1811 and 1812 the institution made its own shillings and sixpences and was responsible for one of the largest silver token issues in the country - as well as a very large copper issue of twopences and pennies. These tokens would have been paid to the local paupers for work done, to be spent in the local shops on food and were redeemable at the Beadle's office of the Workhouse.
