Coronation Chair at Westminster Abbey shows the Scot's Stone of Scone beneath the seat.  The stone has been returned to Scotland since it is their coronation stone.  The English had it for over 700 years and just returned it in 1996. I've seen the stone as well as this chair.  The stone is kept in the Crown Room at Edinburgh Castle, but will be returned to this chair during any coronations.
