This is a unique opportunity to own an actual fragment of coal from the ill-fated RMS Titanic that was retrieved from the recovery expedition in 1994.
This 8” x 10” (20 x 25 cm) historical plaque combines this rare artifact, along with the story of the piece, and a beautifully detailed, engraved illustration of “Maiden Farewell - 1912 Titanic” created by artist Craig Tinder.
The RMS Titanic was the most luxurious and largest steamship of her day. Tragedy struck on April 15, 1912 when the ship sank in the middle of the North Atlantic after striking an iceberg. Titanic was deemed unsinkable and only carried lifeboats for half of the passengers. The massive ship, which took three years to build, sank in less than three hours. The sinking of Titanic resulted in the deaths of 1,500 crew members and passengers.
Titanic was powered by twenty-nine boilers which measured over 15-feet, at a weight of 92 tons each. The ship initially set sail with over 6,000 tons of coal on board and had already consumed half of that by the time of the ship’s sinking. As the ship sank and broke in half, a majority of the remaining coal spilled out across the ocean floor.
This artifact is an actual piece of RMS Titanic’s coal that was retrieved from the ocean floor during the 1994 Research and Recovery Expedition by RMS Titanic, Inc. The fragment contained in this plaque is from artifact No. 940036 - which is the 36th object documented from the 1994 expedition.
