Golly Corner: Lifeboatman

Photo of the LifeboatmanLIFEBOATMAN

The lifeboatman was issued in 1988. Robertson's and the R.N.L.I. (Royal National Lifeboat Institution) got together to produce a limited edition of 25,000. At that time they were sold for 1.15 and two golly tokens. For every brooch sold 15p was donated to the R.N.L.I. charity. The brooch was hand enamelled and distributed in a presentation box. The reverse of the brooch can also be examined. Each brooch came complete with a uniquely numbered certificate and presented diagonally in a plastic box mounted on foam.
