The Mayflower was built in Harwich, Essex, England, in 1609 and eventually recorded as having worked in and out of London for various voyages over the next decade. The Mayflower was partially owned by its Captain, Christopher Jones. It was built in the style of a Dutch cargo fluyt and had an estimated tonnage between 180 and 200 tons. Its exact layout and capacity remain unknown, but it was believed to have four decks and carried 135 people on its most well-known voyage, the Atlantic Ocean crossing to Massachusetts.
The obverse face of the 2020 1 oz Proof Silver Rwandan Mayflower Nautical Ounce Coins includes a depiction of the Mayflower as it sails on the high seas. The Mayflower had crisscrossed the North Atlantic Ocean, English Channel, North Sea, and the Mediterranean Sea in its first 11 years of use before making its voyage across the Atlantic Ocean to bring the English Puritans to the New World.
On the reverse side of 2020 1 oz Proof Silver Rwandan Mayflower Nautical Ounce Coins is an image of the national coat of arms for Rwanda. Known officially as the Republic of Rwanda, inscriptions on this side of the coin are in Kinyarwanda, the native tongue of the indigenous tribes of Rwanda and one of the three official languages of the nation alongside Swahili and French.
