During the reign of Queen Anne, the last Stuart monarch, a huge event occurred in the history of our nation. In 1707 the English and Scottish parliaments were unified and the United Kingdom of Great Britain was formed. This fascinating set of Queen Anne coins brings together two silver half crowns – one struck before the Act of Union and one after. On the later coin the top and bottom shields on the reverse were divided into the arms of England and Scotland. The coins are encapsulated for protection and you’ll receive a handsome display chest provided at no extra charge.
