This is the intriguing story of how ordinary money was used by ordinary people in Scotland. Placks, bawbees, hardheads and bodles ... this absorbing history covers not only coin development and production but also gives an account of how such monies were used, abused, spent, discarded and counterfeited by the Scottish population.

Featured here are coins which the amateur enthusiast is most likely to encounter. The illustrations and descriptions will be invaluable archaeologists, metal detectorists and collectors to identify their coins for themselves and to see how they fit into the complex pattern of Scotland's coinage.
