Add to album

This is the obverse of a gold demy minted at Edinburgh sometime between 1390 and 1406, during the reign of Robert III. The coin was worth two shillings and six pence Scots.

The obverse bears a large crowned shield with the Royal Arms of Scotland. The Latin inscription translates as: 'Robert, by the Grace of God, King of Scots'.

The reign of Robert III saw the introduction of gold lions and half-lions. These coins bear no mint names but like all succeeding gold coinages are thought to have been struck only in Edinburgh. Robert III also had mints at Aberdeen, Perth and Dumbarton.
