UNITED into one KINGDOM 300th Anniversary of the ACT of UNION.
Coin, enclosed within a First Day Cover, issued by the Royal Mint in original package, and in pristine condition.
The Act of Union, which brought together the Kingdoms of Scotland and England was passed in 1707. The Scots lost their Parliament and Scottish MPs now sat at Westminster, although they did retain their legal and educational systems and the independent Church of Scotland. Queen Anne became the first Sovereign of the newly established United Kingdom and the relationship between Scotland and England, Scotland reaped many benefits from the alliance. Indeed united, the two nations gained much.
