Trinity House – serving the mariner for 500 years
For 500 years Trinity House has tirelessly served the mariner, dedicated to the safety of seafarers. To honour the 500th anniversary of this respected organisation, The Royal Mint struck a stunning £2 coin.
Trinity House was formed by Royal Charter under Henry VIII in 1514, the organisation tasked with improving the safety of Britain’s waterways. For 500 years Trinity House has tirelessly served the mariner and to honour the impressive anniversary of this respected organisation a commemorative £2 coin was produced.
The striking reverse captures the spirit of Trinity House with that enduring symbol of the seas – the lighthouse.
