UK Great Britain 1 Shilling ~ Scottish shield {10S} FEATURING front: Scottish lion rampant coat of arms The Royal Arms of Scotland was used historically by the King of Scots, the banner differs from Scotland's national flag, the Saltire, in that its correct use is restricted by an Act of the Parliament of Scotland to only a few Great Officers of State who officially represent the Sovereign in Scotland. It is also used in an official capacity at royal residences in Scotland when the Sovereign is not present. The earliest recorded use of the Lion rampant as a royal emblem in Scotland was by Alexander II in 1222. This emblem occupied the shield of the royal coat of arms of the ancient Kingdom of Scotland which, together with a royal banner displaying the same, was used by the King of Scots until the Union of the Crowns in 1603, when James VI acceded to the thrones of the Kingdom of England and Kingdom of Ireland. Since 1603, the Lion rampant of Scotland has been incorporated into both the royal arms and royal banners of successive Scottish then British monarchs in order to symbolise Scotland; as can be seen today in the Royal Standard of the United Kingdom. • quantity 1 • demonetized {no longer in circulation} polished Copper-nickel coin • diameter: 23.50 mm • weight: 5.6 g ***Choose from drop down menu *** {2 mm thick cords} 24" silver plated ball chain 22" black cotton necklace 1-1/8" silver color keychain with 30 mm ring {see last photo} ******If you need a different length black cotton necklace please message me*** facebook.com/coinedJewelry instagram.com/coinedJewelry twitter.com/coinedJewelry pinterest.com/coinedJewelry tumblr.com/blog/coinedJewelry
