The Mayflower lived an interesting life of voyages long before it ferried the Puritans across the Atlantic Ocean. The name Mayflower was popular in ship naming in England during the reign of King James I between 1603 and 1625, with 26 vessels assigned the name in the Port Books of England during this period.
As for the Mayflower that Captain Christopher Jones took across the Atlantic Ocean with the Puritans, it is believed to have been built in Harwich, Essex, England in 1609, the same place Jones was born in 1570. Jones is listed as the Captain and partial owner as of 1609. The ship’s maiden voyage was a chartered trip from London to Trondheim in Norway. Some 11 years later, the Mayflower would make its way into the history books with its Atlantic voyage.
The obverse side of 2020 1 oz Silver Rwandan Mayflower Nautical Ounce Coins includes a depiction of the Mayflower sailing the ocean.
