To mark the anniversary of the 400th anniversary of the voyage of the Mayflower, the United States Mint and the Royal Mint of England embarked on a historic combined effort to mark the moment. Two of the worlds leading sovereign mints, the US Mint and Royal Mint combined to release two different sets.
These gold and silver bullion sets include a British coin with the same designs on the obverse and reverse. In the gold set, the Royal Mint and US Mint each offered a 1/4 oz gold coin with .9999 purity. In this set, the Royal Mint offers a 1 Troy oz silver coin with .999 purity, while the US Mint offers a 1 Troy oz .9999 silver medal with no legal tender status.
On the US Silver Medals, you will find separate designs from the gold set released by the two mints. The 2020 Proof American 400th Anniversary of the Mayflower Voyage Silver Medals from the US Mint feature obverse designs of a pilgrim family that has come ashore from the Mayflower and is bracing against the windy, cold winter weather of New England. The reverse side features a design of the lifeline that would be extended to the pilgrims by the Wampanoag, who shared their agricultural knowledge with the Puritans.
The British silver coins in the 2020 Proof 400th Anniversary of the Mayflower Voyage offer a right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is shown in the fifth-generation design from Jody Clark. On the reverse of these coins is an image of the Mayflower.
These 2020 Proof American 400th Anniversary of the Mayflower Voyage Silver Coin and Medal Sets come with capsules around the silver bullion specimens and a blue presentation box. The set comes with an individual Certificate of Authenticity as well.
