2020 marks 400 years since the Mayflower set sail on its famous voyage from Plymouth, England to the ‘New World’ in 1620 – a key event in British history.
102 Pilgrims and around 30 crew aboard the ship spent two months at sea, battling against the North Atlantic wind on their ground-breaking journey to America.
US designer, Chris Costello, retells the epic story of the Mayflower’s voyage on the obverse of this new £2 coin. Sails billowing in the wind, this memorable design features the inscription ‘1620-2020’ above and ‘Mayflower’ below.
Keen collectors may also recognise the iconic Mayflower ship which has been seen once before on the rare Royal Mint £2 trial pieces created in 1994 – only adding to the popularity of this new 2020 coin.
