The Mayflower that crossed the Atlantic Ocean in the fall of 1620 was just the latest ship with that name registered in London, England. The ship first departed from Holland with some of the Pilgrims that had already left England in 1608. The ship then sailed for the south coast of England to pick up more Pilgrims before heading off to the New World. After 10 weeks at sea, the ship reached the coastline we now know as Cape Cod.
The obverse of 2020 1/4 oz Reverse Proof Gold American 400th Anniversary of the Mayflower Coins features an image of a Wampanoag family. The indigenous people living in this region prior to the arrival of Europeans, the Wampanoag were largely responsible for the long-term survival of the Pilgrims by showing them how to successfully grow crops in the New World.
On the reverse side of the 2020 Reverse Proof Gold American Mayflower Coins is an image of Pilgrims from aboard the ship. These individuals are captured in left-profile relief and are representative of the intrepid nature of the individuals sailing toward hope in the New World.
