Detailed information about coin type: Maundy Threepence (Debased silver) from United Kingdom:

Coin type: Maundy Threepence (Debased silver)
Description

The original composition of all Maundy coins was sterling (0.925) silver. In common with all British silver coins, the fineness was reduced to 0.500 in 1921. In 1947 silver was removed from all circulating British coinage in favour of cupronickel, but as it was felt to be inappropriate to strike Maundy coins in base metal, their fineness was restored to 0.925.
