Baldwins, by private treaty, c. 1965 - £7.10.0

There are two different dies used for the obverse of this medal; one has the shoulder straps plain, the other decorated. The Act of Union between England and Scotland received the royal assent on the 6th March 1707, and came into operation on the 1st May following. The Union is indicated on this medal by the English and Scottish coat of arms being impaled in the first and fourth quarters, in the conjunction of the crosses of St. George and St. Andrew upon one shield, and in the rose and thistle growing upon one stalk on the other.
