About This Design
Trinity House was formed by Royal Charter under Henry VIII in 1514. The organisation was tasked with improving the safety of Britain’s waterways and for 500 years Trinity House has tirelessly served the mariner. To honour the 500th Anniversary of this respected organisation, a £2 coin entered circulation.
The reverse features a design by Joe Whitlock Blundell, Production Director of The Folio Society, created with the help of David Eccles, a retired illustrator and printer. It captures the spirit of Trinity House with an enduring symbol of the seas – the lighthouse.
