By 1980 it had become apparent that with the general decline in purchasing power, the £1 unit of currency was more appropriate to a coin than a banknote.

After consultation with many groups including retailers and special interest groups, the Government announced on 31 July 1981 that a new £1 coin that was to be issued on 21 April 1983.

This £1 coin was the first release of custom Scottish Coinage for circulation. 

Designed by renowned silversmith Leslie Durbin, the reverse appropriately depicted the Scottish thistle encircled by the Royal Diadem." This design was issued again only once, in 1989.

The edge inscription NEMO ME IMPUNE LACESSIT can be translated as "No one attacks me with impunity".

Only 27,960 specimen grade coins were issued in these presentation folders.

The coin remain in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, preserved in the original Royal Mint holder, with the case like new.
