Scotland

Of this kindom there is but the one token described; and this is very surprising, as the large cities of Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth, Aberdeen, etc., must have needed small change, and there seems to have been no special law in Scotland against their issue, and more than in England and Ireland. The Black Money of the Scottish Kings, and the patent farthings of James I and Charles I seem, however, to have met the requirements of the trade of that period.
