Great Britain 1, 2, 3, and 4 Pence Maundy Set  1700 to Date
Great Britain 1, 2, 3, and 4 Pence Maundy Set 1700 to Date

I couldn't find a good picture of a 1 penny coin for Bryan, but you get the idea with this 2 pence coin. These small denomination silver coins have been packaged in Maundy Sets and given out during church services on Maundy Thursday (the day before Good Friday, when Jesus Christ ws crucified) for centuries. The sets left intact are in uncirculated condition, or close to it, so that makes them quite valuable. You can divide, very roughly, the 4-coin set value by 4 to get a single coin value.

The general values of 4-coin Maundy sets goes roughly like this:

Before 1700: $500 and up
Before 1800: $500
Before 1840: $400
Before 1900: $300
After 1900: $200

These are catalog values and very approximate. There are a few exceptional dates, with approximate values as follows:

1701: $1000
1953: $700

There is also another twist. Proof Maundy coins carry values about 3 times higher than normal strikes. Proof coins are minted with specially polished dies and are treated with extra care during the minting process.
