Crowley's use of it is very brief.

From Heart of the Master:

"The Two and Twenty Secret Instructions of the Master."


"                             VII.

The issue of the Vulture, Two-in-One, conveyed; this is the chariot of
Power.  TRINC: The last oracle!"

From Magick without Tears:


"And if the above remarks should embolden you to exclaim: "Perhaps a
little drink would do me no great harm" I shall feel that I have
deserved well of my country!

"For --- see Liber Aleph, after Rabelais --- the Word of the Last
Oracle is TRINC."

From Confessions:

Section 81:

"The Urn is engraved with a word or symbol expressive of the nature of
the being whose ash is therein.  The Magus is thus, of course, not a
person in any ordinary sense; he represents a certain nature or idea.
To put it otherwise, we may say, the Magus is a word.  He is the Logos
of the Aeon which he brings to pass.<>"


The reference in Rabelais is to a planned visit by Pantagruel and
Panurge to the Oracle (Bacbuc) of the Holy Bottle -- which begins with
a discussion of the meaning of a bottle, whether full or empty, and
the likelyhood that one's wife will be a sot or not.  They reach the
Oracle after sundry adventures, head off again and get back to the
Oracle again toward the end of the book.  After a good snort from the
sacred flask, Panurge enlarges on the sacred word in a poem:

"Trinc, trinc; by Bacchus let us tope,
 And tope again; for now I hope
 To see some brawny, juicy rump,
 And tickle't with my carnal stump.
 E'er long, my friends, I shall be wedded,
 Sure as my trap-stick has a red head;
 And my sweet wife shall hold the combat,
 Long as my baws can on her mum beat.
 O what a battle of a-- fighting
 Will there be! which I much delight in!
 What peleasing pains then shall I take
 To keep myself and spouse awake!
 All heart and juice, I'll up and ride,
 And make a duchess of my bride.
 Sing Io paean! loudly sing
 To Hymen, who all joys will bring.
 Well, friar John, I'll take my oath,
 This oracle is full of troth;
 Intelligible truth it bears,
 More certain than the sive and shears."


As to further significance, consider the Star Saphire.
