Other treason legislation
Another Act (1 Mary Sess.2 c.6) passed in the same year made it high treason to counterfeit foreign coins, or forge the Queen's privy seal, signet ring or royal sign manual. This Act was replaced by the Forgery Act 1830, which continued this form of treason until it was repealed in 1861. (That offence continued to exist as a felony until 1981.)
- The citation of this Act by this short title was authorised by section 5 of, and Schedule 2 to, the Statute Law Revision Act 1948. Due to the repeal of those provisions, it is now authorised by section 19(2) of the Interpretation Act 1978.
- These words are printed against this Act in the second column of Schedule 2 to the Statute Law Revision Act 1948, which is headed "Title".
