Flipping the Union Coin

The Act of Union two pound coin

The Scottish thistle, the English rose and two portcullis all arranged in an irreconcilable jigsaw puzzle riven by a gap laced with spikes – the people who designed this commemorative coin were clearly in favour of bringing the Union to an end. What a bunch of jokers!

The Act of Union specified that there would be a mint in England and a mint in Scotland – never happened. But, I’ve just checked and the ‘Scottishmint’ domain name is still available to any of you optimistic about an independent future!
