2022 James I Gold Proof Coin

King James I (Scotland 1567 - 1625) & (England 1603 - 1625)

Born in 1566, James became King at 13 months old when his mother, Mary Queen of Scots was ousted by an alliance of protestant nobles. With his mother exiled and imprisoned in England, and his father Lord Darnley dead (allegedly killed on the orders of Mary), James was left in the care of the zealously protestant Scottish Kirk and nobility, which was determined to see that the infant king was moulded into their idea of what a king should be.

The most obvious legacy of his reign is the union of the two crowns of England and Scotland, simply by birthright, he eventually inherited both crowns. In 1612, he commissioned a new Bible in English, now commonly known as the 'King James Bible', which continues to have an important influence on protestant Christianity throughout the English speaking world.
