The 500th Anniversary of Trinity House is an anniversary that deserves a distinguished tribute. The Trinity House 2014 UK Gold Proof Coin is adorned with a reverse design by Joe Whitlock Blundell, Production Director of The Folio Society, and David Eccles, a retired illustrator and printer. The pair have captured the spirit of Trinity House with the reassuring symbol of the seas – the lighthouse – the trinity reflected quite literally in the three facets of the lighthouse lens.
Your coin is presented in attractive packaging and is joined by a beautifully designed booklet, compiled with the support of the experts at Trinity House and filled with stories that recall the history and heritage of the organisation. Collectors, seafarers and historians alike will delight in the tales, including humorous anecdotes about one of the institution’s most famous Brethren, Winston Churchill. Only 300 of these prestigious coins will be available in this Limited Edition Presentation.
