Prior to the arrival of the Puritan colonists in what is now Massachusetts, the people of the colony had a traditional celebration known as thanksgiving. These large meals were part of a day of prayer to thank God for blessings that included anything from military victories to the end of a drought or a bountiful harvest. Thanksgiving, as we know it today in America, is based on that first thanksgiving celebrated by the colonists in New England as a time to celebrate the first successful harvest in the New World.
All of the 2021 1 oz Proof Silver First Thanksgiving 400th Anniversary Coins available here come with individual packaging. The coins are offered in protective plastic capsules and have a Certificate of Authenticity. As a proof coin, each one has frosted design elements with mirror-like background fields. The Native American Mint issued the coins with a limit of 400 coins in all, a nod to the 400th anniversary of the first thanksgiving.
On the obverse of 2021 Proof Silver First Thanksgiving 400th Anniversary Coins is an image of the gathering for that first Thanksgiving meal. In the design, Wampanoag people are seated near the Pilgrims and being offered some of the food from the Pilgrims’ harvest.
The reverse field of 2021 1 oz Proof Silver First Thanksgiving Coins depicts the moment the Wampanoag people meet the first Pilgrims arriving in New England. As the sun rises over the horizon behind the Mayflower, Pilgrims row toward shore where a member of the Wampanoag tribe stands nearby.
These coins are issued by the Native American Mint with the legal authorization of the Mesa Grande Sovereign Nation. The coins have a face value but are not legal tender United States coins.
