Why purchase this commemorative silver reverse proof 2020 Mayflower 400th Anniversary medal?
This gorgeous reverse proof silver medal was issued by the United States Mint in 2020 in celebration of the 400-year milestone of the England to Massachusetts voyage of the Mayflower in 1620.

Beautifully Detailed Design
Obverse: A family from the Mayflower stands on the obverse, symbolically bracing against the approaching winter season. The Mayflower is anchored in the background, with the anniversary dates "1620-2020" curving below. The inscriptions "A CIVIL BODY POLITICK" and "MAYFLOWER COMPACT" surround the image, separated by two mayflower blossoms.
Reverse: The reverse depicts a man and woman caring for crops, symbolizing the sustainable planting, soil maintenance and harvesting techniques the Pilgrims learned from Native American Wampanoag people. Inscribed "SUSTAINERS OF LIFE" and "PEOPLE OF THE DAWN." The images were crafted by award-winning sculptor Chris Costello, designer of more than twenty coins and medals since becoming a member of U.S. Mint Artistic Infusion Program in 2010.
