This new volume in the Sylloge of Coins of the British Isles describes and illustrates the Scottish coins minted between 1603 and 1709 that are held in the National Museum of Scotland's collection. The Museum also holds an important collection of dies and related objects, the majority of which belong to the 17th-century Scottish coinage. These have therefore been included in the volume. Each coin and dye is fully described and clearly illustrated by high quality photographs.

Introductory chapters discuss the history of the Scottish coinage of the period and contemporary minting practices. With over 100 plates, a list of sources of all the coins, concordances, bibliography, and indexes, the volume is a comprehensive guide to the National Museum of Scotland's collection.
