2014 500th Anniversary of Trinity House Two Pound Coin
2014 sees the release of a two pound coin to commemorate the 500th anniversary of Trinity House. In 1514, Henry VIII granted a Royal Charter to an agency now known as Trinity House. For 500 years, the safety of shipping in the coastal waters of Britain, and the well being of seafarers, have been the prime concerns of Trinity House. The coin features a lighthouse lens, an enduring symbol of safety on the seas.
The brilliant uncirculated version comes in a pleasant presentation pack complete with photographs and information documenting the history of Trinity House.
The quote on the front of the presentation pack is as follows:
"So many beacons, marks and signs for the sea... whereby the dangers may be avoided and escaped and ships the better come unto their ports without peril." - Elizabeth I
The fourth of Queen Elizabeth II, designed by Ian Rank Broadley, FRBS, FSNAD, whose initials IRB appear under the head, as used on all British coins from 1998.
The legend (inscription) reads:
ELIZABETH II DEI GRA REG FID DEF
The reverse features a lighthouse, with the inscription:

If you want to find the value of a coin you own, please take a look at our page I've Found An Old Coin, What's It Worth?
Please, if you are going to ask us whether the £2 coin you own is worth more than £2, please, please, please read our other pages about them first, and even then the answer is almost certainly no. About 1,000 people every week read one or more of our pages about £2 coins. Hopefully most manage to find what they wanted. A tiny percentage, but still about 20 per week ask us whether a £2 they have found in change / in a drawer / been given is worth more than £2. The answer to 99% of these questions is already on our site. We do not have the time or patience to answer such questions individually.
