      I believe that "Coffin" and "Coffer" are both generic medieval english
      terms for "box"

      Usually "coffin" in this context refers to a free standing crust ( though
      they are sometimes supported before being baked, the support is generally
      removed ).
      This is why there is usually no fat in the crust recipe, as a fatted crust
      needs to be supported with a pan.
      Think "Pate en Croute" instrad of "Mincemeat pie".
