Bliss Lighthouse, Belize City Harbour

This light was built as a memorial to Henry E.E.V. Bliss, an English baron who was a major benefactor of Belize.  

On March 9th 1926, two months after his arrival in Belize and without ever having set foot on Belizean soil, Baron Bliss died, leaving Belize a $2 million legacy. The interest from his legacy was used to fund many infrastructural projects throughout Belize including roads, schools and the country’s first theatre.

A 2012 issue to celebrate the sixty year reign of Queen Elizabeth II. Belize is part of The Commonwealth, a voluntary association of 54 independent countries, almost all of which were formerly under British rule.
