The Royal Lancashire Show (RLS) is an agricultural show which takes place every year at different locations throughout the historical county boundaries of Lancashire in North England. The show is organised by the Royal Lancashire Agricultural Society (RLAS) and is one of Britain's oldest agricultural shows, first taking place in 1767. The roots of the Royal Lancashire Agricultural Society go back to a meeting of landed proprietors at the Old Coffee Tavern, Salford, in 1767, to discuss forming an agricultural society for the Eastern District of Lancashire. The most influential supporters were Wilbraham Egerton, of Tatton, the Earl of Derby and the Duke of Bridgewater. A Liverpool Society started in 1830, again through the influence of the Earl of Derby, and in 1847 he expressed a wish for the societies in the north of the county to combine, and so the Royal North Lancashire Agricultural Society was born, which eventually absorbed the Liverpool and Manchester societies to form the Royal Lancashire Agricultural Society. The details of the winner are usually inscribed on the rim or the back of the medallion. Issued also in silver (diameter 46mm), or 22 grammes of 9 carat gold (diameter 48mm). In ancient Roman religion, Ceres was a goddess of agriculture, grain crops, fertility and motherly relationship and this is often on the back of the coin although in this case it is the inscription of the details of the 1958 Winner.
