Elizabeth II (1952-), silver Maundy set, 1953, first type with BRITT:OMN: legend, Four, Three, Two and One Penny, each with young laureate head of Queen right, legend and beaded border surrounding, +ELIZABETH.II. DEI. GRA: BRITT: OMN: REGINA. F:D:, rev. crowned mark of value with date either side all within oak wreath (Bull 4559 R2; ESC 2570; S.4126). Mint state with light tone, very rare one year only type.

The official Maundy sets were given by the Queen at Westminster Abbey in 1953, they are the only current coins issued in sterling silver. The mintage for all four denominations for 1953 would produce 1,025 Maundy sets. 1953 is the only year that the Queen's coinage carries the BRITT: OMN: obverse legend, it being dropped from 1954.

The abbreviated Latin legends translate as on the obverse "Elizabeth the Second by the Grace of God, Queen of all the Britains, Defender of the Faith."
