A gift from the Grand Lodge of Russia

3 centuries of English Masonry: a gift from the Grand Lodge of Russia
On October 31, 2017, the 300th anniversary of the United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE) was held in London's Albert Hall. The ceremony was attended by more than 4.5 thousand honorary members of the Masonic lodges from all over the world, including the Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Russia (GLoR) Andrey Bogdanov who arrived together with his wife.
Exactly three centuries ago, in 1717, representatives of four London lodges gathered in the Goose and Gridiron alehouse in St. Paul's Churchyard in London and established the United Grand Lodge of England. Now it is the oldest and one of the largest Masonic organizations in the world, encompassing more than 200 000 freemasons, united in 7 thousand lodges. UGLE is led by His Royal Highness Prince Edward, Duke of Kent.
In honor of the 300th anniversary of UGLE, at the personal request of Grand Master of GLoR Andrey Bogdanov, the Russian Masonic jewelry company "Diamlvx" produced a commemorative medal made of gold and silver and inlaid with diamonds.

This medal became part of a permanent exhibition at the Masonry Museum in London.
