Scotland issued its own coinage as an independent nation before the act of union in 1707 when they joined with England and Wales as the United Kingdom.

My opening line in the introduction to ‘British Territories Past and Present’ is:

“Great Britain, within the context of overseas territories, comprises England, Scotland and the principality of Wales.”

Perhaps you should read these two topics I posted previously:
