Groat, plack, thistle or pistole?

Next year, on 18 September 2014, Scotland will hold a referendum on the issue for independance from the Unitied Kingdom. One of the more intriguing questions (for collectors of banknotes at least) is what the currency of the new country will be if it chooses independance.

This article explores some of the options, looking back at the past (groat, plack, pistole), the present (Scottish Pound) or even the future (bitcoin).

My guess is they won't choose anything too fancy like the unicorn or the bitcoin so my money is on the Scottish pound.
