Trinity House is the General Lighthouse Authority for England, Wales, the Channel Islands and Gibraltar. As Britain began increasing its naval power in the early 16th Century, maritime safety became crucial, and Trinity House was granted a Royal Charter in 1514 by Henry VIII. Issued in 2014 by the Royal Mint, this £2 commemorates its 500th anniversary, with the reverse design featuring a depiction of a lighthouse lens.
