Information On The Coins Commissioner:
James VI ascended to the Scottish throne when he was just a year old, following his mother's abdication in 1567. His mother, Queen Mary, was executed in England in 1587. In a twist of fate, upon Queen Elizabeth's death in 1603, James VI inherited the English throne and is historically known as James VI and I. With this, he became the first King of England from the House of Stuart, uniting the crowns of Scotland and England.
