The Coventry Pin Club badge is a must-have for any fan of Coventry's rich history and iconic landmarks. Featuring not one, but two of Coventry's most significant icons - the Whittle Arches and the black cab, this pin badge is a perfect representation of the city's past and present.
The Whittle Arch is located in Millennium Place in Coventry City Centre and is made of stainless steel. It is a commemoration of Sir Frank Whittle, the inventor of the jet engine, who worked in the Rolls-Royce factory in Coventry. A statue of Whittle can also be found nearby, adding to the significance of the Whittle Arches.
The badge also celebrates the black cab, another huge part of Coventry's history. Coventry has been the home of taxi production in the UK for over 70 years, and black cabs have been produced in the city for much of that time. In 2018, an electric version of the black cab was launched, offering zero-emission driving capability.
Each badge is hand-numbered, making it a truly unique and special accessory. The backing card that accompanies the badge also displays its individual number, making it a collector's item for Coventry locals and visitors alike.
This pin badge is made by Coventry people for Coventry people and is a great way to show your love for this vibrant and ever-changing city. It's a perfect addition to any collection, whether you're a fan of Coventry's history, architecture, or modern developments.
