Scotland did not have a native coinage for well over a millenium after a coinage system had been adopted in Southern Britain and for over a century after the Norsemen first minted pennies in Ireland. This does not mean that coinage was unknown in ancient Alban: far from it, for the occasional Celtic coin from the South has been discovered north of the Border and, of course, many hoards and individual specimens of Roman coins have been found in the areas of Roman military occupation between the Hadrianic and Antonine fortification systems, and even north of these along the route to the North-East coast. But in the Celtic lands of Ireland, Wales, Strathclyde and Scotland, where the socioeconomic system did not favour large urban settlements, there was not the same need for coin as there was in the more commercially developed South.
