Why purchase this 2pc GB/US 2020 1 oz Silver Mayflower 400th Anniversary Set?
The Mayflower's 1620 voyage to the New World is one of the most famous immigrant stories in America. In fact, the Pilgrims and Native Americans shared the first Thanksgiving, a holiday still celebrated throughout the United States. This set marks the 400th anniversary of the historic trip, which is but one example of a harrowing tale of those who helped build what is today one of the most powerful countries in the world. This set not only marks the first time the The Royal Mint and the United States Mint have collaborated on such a product, but also the first time that a United States Mint employee designed a coin issued by The Royal Mint! U.S. Mint designer Chris Costello designed both the silver coin and silver medal included in this anniversary set!
Moving Mayflower Designs
US Medal: On the medal's obverse, a Pilgrim couple brace themselves in cold weather with the Mayflower in the background. They are joined by rim inscriptions that read, "A CIVIL BODY POLITICK" and "MAYFLOWER COMPACT." On the reverse, a Wampanoag couple employ one of their planting techniques. Inscriptions on this face read, "SUSTAINERS OF LIFE" and "PEOPLE OF THE DAWN."
GB coin: The British coin features a portrait of reigning British monarch Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse. It was designed by Jody Clark and is encircled by inscriptions of the monarch's name and abbreviated Latin title and the coin's face value. The Mayflower sails the high seas on the reverse. This face also includes an inscription of its name, "MAYFLOWER," and the anniversary dates, "1620" and "2020."
