To celebrate the 400th Anniversary of the voyage of the Mayflower – the first quarter sovereign with selective frosting!

2020 marks the 400th anniversary of the voyage of the Mayflower from England to the New World – one of the most important moments in the history of Europe and the Americas.

In September 1620, 102 passengers and around 30 crew set sail on the Mayflower from Plymouth, England to settle in the New World. Later known as the ‘Pilgrim Fathers’, these voyagers formed the first permanent settlement of Europeans in New England, on the east coast of America.

It took 66 days for the Mayflower to cross the Atlantic. Winter storms battered the ship and those aboard suffered prolonged seasickness in cramped conditions. Rough seas prevented the ship from reaching its intended destination in Virginia and it finally landed at what would become known as Plymouth, on the western side of Cape Cod Bay, Massachusetts. More than half the settlers died during the harsh winter of 1620, but the following year, the Pilgrims’ first harvest in the New World gave rise to the modern American celebration of Thanksgiving.

The settlement founded by those original Pilgrims has led today to the growth and development of the United States of America and around 30 million people can trace their ancestry back to the passengers and crew of the Mayflower. The voyage of the Mayflower, a relatively minor event in its day, has turned into one of the pivotal moments in modern history.

Today, as part of the commemorations of the 400th anniversary of this momentous event, some exceptional gold coins have been minted: featuring designs that retell the main events of the Pilgrims’ progress, beautifully highlighted with selective frosting – the first time this has ever been applied to a sovereign coin!

New gold quarter sovereign celebrates the voyage of the Mayflower

The quarter sovereign depicts the Pilgrims as they load their supplies onto the Mayflower in preparation for their Atlantic voyage. They were men, women and children from different walks of life, from England and the city of Leiden in Holland, many of whom were Puritan ‘separatists’ seeking religious freedom outside the Church of England.

The design on this commemorative quarter sovereign has been rendered with great precision, bringing to life the first stage of the Mayflower’s perilous journey to the New World.  Authorised by Tristan Da Cunha, and approved by both the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Buckingham  Palace, it is a wonderful celebration.

Benefit from the SELL OUT GUARANTEE

Sell Out Guarantee

The 2020 Mayflower 400th Anniversary Gold Quarter Sovereign is limited to just 1,620 coins, but this is subject to our new SELL OUT GUARANTEE. What this means is that availability of this coin will end on 31st March 2021. At that time, any coins that are unsold will be melted down and verified to that effect.

At that point, we will issue to owners of this coin a new certificate stating the final mintage which may be lower, or possibly considerably lower, than 1,620. If the mintage remains at 1,620 then this means the coins sold out entirely to keen customers, and if not you may have secured for yourself a low mintage rarity.

Either way, there will be little or no surplus of this coin on the secondary market and so the coin you own will be a rarity!

The best part is that you may own this landmark gold coin for less than £100 – it may be yours at the introductory price of £99 (plus £4.99 postage and packing) – but only until 31st January 2021 after which the price will be £199, subject to availability. There is a limit of one coin per household at this introductory price.
