The Sedov first set sail in 1921 out of the Friedrich Krupp Germaniawerft port in Kiel, Germany. While she is known as the Sedov today, initially this four-masted barque went by the name Magdalene Vinnen II. In her early years, she was a cargo ship, carrying everything from coal to wheat all over the globe. In 1936, she was sold to a different German shipping company and renamed Kommodore Johnsen. During this period she became both a cargo and a training ship. Then, in December 1945, she became the Sedov when British forces gave her to Russia for war reparations. Today, this marvelous ship is operated by Kaliningrad State Technical University.
The Sedov is featured on the obverse of 2021 3 oz Rwandan Sedov Nautical Ounce Coins. She is depicted sailing the seas towards the east in stunning detail. The image also includes a compass and various nautical equipment. Inscriptions include the words Nautical Ounce, 2021, 3 oz Fine Silver .999.
The official seal of Rwanda is depicted on the reverse of 2021 3 oz Antique Silver Rwandan Sedov Coins. A basket, a coffee branch, and a sorghum stem are all shown above a cogwheel. Also, you will find Rwandan text that translates to Republic of Rwanda, Unity, Work, Patriotism.
