A golden celebration for a noble organisation

Trinity House – serving the mariner for 500 years

In 2014 Trinity House celebrates 500 years of helping to ensure the safety of Britain’s waterways and the seafarers who navigate them. To honour this notable anniversary, The Royal Mint has struck the 500th Anniversary of Trinity House 2014 UK £2 Gold Proof Coin. These glorious limited edition coins are finished to The Royal Mint’s Proof standard and are presented in sophisticated packaging with an illustrated booklet recounting fascinating Trinity House tales.

About the coin

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.

The history and importance of Trinity House, combined with the RM quality makes this coin one of the favourites in my collection. The associated booklet is very interesting and once again, I applaud the RM team on another winning design and quality product that I will treasure.
