On the inside cover:

Scotland's turbulent and colourful history is clearly reflected in its coinage. Over the centuries Roman legions, Viking raiders and settlers, medieval merchants and returning mercenaries all brought coins with them. Added to these there is the coinage of gold, billon and copper struck under Scotland's monarchs until union with England brought the minting of a seperate coinage to an end in 1707. All of these are featured in the most up-to-date survey of coinage in Scotland.
