The Kingdom of Scotland and Kingdom of England were not officially united until the Acts of Union in 1707, but unification of the two crowns through one person took place more than a century earlier with the ascension of James VI of Scotland to the throne of England.
Following the death of Queen Elizabeth I with no heirs, her closest living relative was chosen as the new ruler of England. James VI of Scotland unified the crowns through his person and brought the Unicorn of Scotland to the heraldry of the Royal Arms of England. To this day, the Unicorn supports the shield alongside the Lion of England.
On the reverse of 2019 10 oz British Silver Queens Beast Unicorn Coins is the image of the Unicorn of Scotland. The beast has long been a symbol for Scotland was chosen by James to be part of his new heraldic seal when he united the thrones in 1603. This design, however, reflects the White Unicorn of Scotland supporting the historic shield of Scotland.
