Information On The Coins Commissioner:
Mary Stuart, commonly known as Mary Queen of Scots, was only an infant, not even a year old, when she ascended to the throne as the Queen of Scots following her father's demise in 1542. Her reign was marked by numerous challenges, and she went through three marriages. After facing a series of complications, she abdicated the throne in 1567, passing it to her young son, James VI. Mary's involvement in plots against her cousin, Elizabeth I of England, led to her imprisonment. The culmination of her tragic life came with her execution at Fotheringhay in Northamptonshire in the year 1587. Interestingly, her son James would later ascend to the English throne in 1603, becoming James I King of England, after the passing of Elizabeth I.
