The thistle on the modern British five pence piece is a reminder of what was once a separate Scottish coinage. For over two hundred years only silver pennies were minted but from the fourteenth century a succession of new types and values appeared, including gold nobles, unicorns, ducats, unites, silver ryals, merks and dollars. The Scottish coinage was one of endless change and variety and was only brought to an end following the Act of Union in 1707. About the author Born in Belfast, Donald Bateson took charge of the Numismatics section in the Ulser Museum and in 1978 moved to Glasgow to become Curator of the Hunter coin cabinet at Glasgow University.
