English Coins Set 1846 Private Patterns, Smith on Currency a 5-coin set by Marrian & Gausby, comprising 1846 Original striking with no die rust spots, 6mm thick, Freeman 812, X#50, formerly KM#PPn35, 1846 Original striking, 3.25mm thick, Freeman 818, X#49, formerly KM#PPn33, Two Cents 1846 Freeman 819, X#48, formerly KM#PPn29, One Cent 1846 without Marrian & Gausby below the head, Freeman 823, X#46, formerly KM#PPn27, 1846 in White metal, X#47a, nFDC to FDC a superb set, the copper coins all rated R17 by Freeman, in a contemporary fitted case, we note each coin in this set superior to the examples from the Freeman collection, (two purchased by P.Deane, two purchased by G.Monk), the Freeman example later sold as part of the J.Tansley collection of Patterns, s and Coining s. The coins in this set were the earliest patterns for a British Decimal Coinage. While restrikes were made in 1888 (by Shorthouse) that exist in various metals, only the original strikings are in copper and are free from die rust marks. Peck states in a footnote (page 479, 2nd Edition) describing the copper 10-cent, 5-cent, 2-cent, and 1-cent pieces as being the 'Decimal equivalents of a , a Penny, a , and a , respectively'. Further, Peck states that 'It is highly probable that the 1-centum piece was intended to represent a silver Decimal of '.

The silver designs reminiscent of earlier, classic designs, The famed Una and the Lion from the 1839 Gold , the Standing Britannia from the I series, the Lion on Crown from the later and , and the Crowned Shield in Garter from the later Shilling and Sixpence series. The coins were among those stuck in the winter and spring of 1962-1963 as part of a group of coin struck for the 'Decimal Coinage Committee' which had been appointed in December 1961 to advise on the most convenient and practical form that a Decimal currency might take. The Chairman of the Committee was The Rt. Hon. Earl of Halsbury FRS, The Secretary was Mr. N.A.E. Moore, who subsequently became Chairman of the Decimal Currency Board. The Assistant Secretary was Mr. John Rimington. The coins were circulated at the meetings by the Deputy Mr. J.H. James CB. A truly spectacular and ultra-rare set, only 2-5 sets believed to exist. We can find no record of this set ever being offered in a Royal Mint case, indeed neither Freeman, Krause nor Coincraft mentions the existence of a case, so this set being offered as it is in the Royal Mint case very probably is unique.
