2014 Trinity House Lighthouse Two Pound Brilliant Uncirculated Coin In Folder


Buy a 2014 Trinity House Lighthouse Two Pound Brilliant Uncirculated Coin In Folder

2014 saw the 500th anniversary of the founding of the Trinity House Corporation and the Royal Mint released a special commemorative series of Two Pound coins, including this pre-owned brilliant uncirculated cupronickel edition. Trinity House was established when a guild of seafarers petitioned King Henry VIII in 1513 to create a fraternity of mariners 'so that they might regulate the pilotage of ships in the King's streams.' This was in reaction to the poor conduct of unregulated pilots in the River Thames. In 1609, Lowestoft Lighthouse was the first major seamark built by Trinity House, but many more followed over the next two hundred years. By 1836, Trinity House was given the power to acquire and maintain all major lighthouses, light vessels, and buoys. The reverse design was jointly created by Joe Whitlock Blunder and David Eccles and features a lighthouse lamp editing beams of light across the coin's face. The lighthouse lamp was chosen as it was simple, impactful, and carries a weight of symbolism including safety, reliability, and tradition. The Trinity is represented by the three visible facets of the lighthouse. On the edge, the inscription summarises the responsibility of the organisation: 'SERVING THE MARINER'. On the opposite side is Ian Rank-Broadley's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, which is the fourth official effigy of Her Majesty. Specifications of the collectable UK coin are a weight of 12.00 grams and a diameter of 28.40 millimetres. It's issued in the original limited edition packaging from the Royal Mint.
