The set marks the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower’s voyage across the Atlantic Ocean to found a new colony that would offer greater religious tolerance. The Puritans made up the majority of the passengers on the ship, and an inscription on the US silver medal of “A Civil Body Politick” points to wording in the Mayflower Compact. Signed by 41 men aboard the Mayflower before people set foot on shore from the ship, the Mayflower Compact set forth an agreement that those aboard the ship would form a community based on law and order, with mutual respect and abidance of said laws.

These crops and the knowledge of growing in the New World would prove vital to the survival of the pilgrims in the long run.
