Since 1603, when King James VI of Scotland became King James I of England, both countries have had the same monarchy. They were, however, still separate countries with individual parliaments. There were several attempts to unite the countries but it wasn't until 1st May 1707, when the Acts of Union were finally passed, that the English and Scottish Parliaments united to become the Parliament of Great Britain.
In 2007, the tricentenary of this act was celebrated with a £2 coin. The reverse design by Yvonne Holton depicts four pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, fitting together to unite the English Rose, Scottish Thistle and two portcullises. The denomination and significant dates surround this image, and the edge inscription "UNITED INTO ONE KINGDOM" summarises the event. Ian Rank-Broadley's 4th portrait is used on the obverse.
