An Eighteenth Century Document Pertaining to the Edinburgh Mint – David Rampling.

The purpose of this note is to place on record a document saved by an eminent nineteenth century numismatist as an insertion in a grangerized book. Documents relating to the Scottish mint during its lengthy survival from the cessation of coinage in 1709 until its closure in 1817 are rarely in the public domain. The Draft of Warrant, dated 1750, and transcribed in this article, may also fill a temporal gap in the National Archive, which is apparently deficient of similar documents for the mid-eighteenth century.

Note: A “grangerized” book is one that has had its’ illustrative content augmented by the insertion of additional prints, drawings, engravings, etc., not included in the original volume.
