Carrying a crowned Scottish Thistle on the reverse, with a crowned Scottish Arms on the obverse, the Half-Thistle Merk is scarce in any grade. A powerful memento of independent Scotland, the Half-Thistle Merk was consigned to the pages of history after James became King of England, with Scottish coinage revised to match English denominations.
