Nautical history has seen plenty of great ships over the centuries. When experts rank the all-time greats, you’ll often find the STS Sedov at the top of their lists. The ship has a fascinating story that begins in 1921, when she was launched at the Friedrich Krupp Germaniawerft in Germany. She quickly gained fame for her size and speed as she carried cargo around the world. In 1936, she was sold to a different German shipping company and became primarily a training vessel. Finally, in 1945, she was handed over to Russia as part of a World War II reparations package. Today, the Sedov remains a training vessel for cadets and is also used in sailing races across the globe.
The STS Sedov is depicted on the obverse of 2021 Rwandan Sedov Nautical Ounce Coins. This legendary vessel is captured in stunning detail as it sails through the crashing waves.
