In the summer of 1620, the Mayflower departed from London on what would become a five-month journey to the New World. The Mayflower left London and first navigated down the Thames from London to the coast of England and stopped in Southampton to rendezvous with another ship. Departing for the New World in August, the Mayflower was forced to return to Dartmouth for repairs on its companion ship. By September, the Mayflower was underway to the New World and would arrive by November 1620.
On the obverse field of the 2020 1 oz Antique Silver Rwandan Mayflower Nautical Ounce Coins is an image of the Mayflower as it sails through the open ocean. The Mayflower was designed as a Dutch fluyt, a type of cargo ship designed to maximize crew space and cargo capacity. This side of the coin has the name of the series, date mark, weight, purity, and metal content all inscribed in English. The design field includes the common elements of a compass and sextant in the background.
The reverse face of 2020 Antique Silver Rwandan Mayflower Nautical Ounce Coins bears the coat of arms for the Republic of Rwanda. The design features a traditional clay pot, coffee and sorghum branches, and battle shields. Inscriptions on this face are in Kinyarwanda, the native tongue of Rwanda.
