Photos of Queen Elizabeth visiting Oxford for Maundy Thursday services. The Maundy money was today distributed by the Queen to 87 women and 87 men, who each received two purses, one red and one white. A 5 GBP coin and 50 pence coin commemorating the 60th anniversary of The Queens Coronation in the red purse. The white purse contains the uniquely minted Maundy Money. This takes the form of silver one, two, three and four penny pieces, the sum of which equals the number of years the Monarch's age. Photo by Kirsty Wigglesworth - WPA Pool/Getty Images.
