Gold Ounce 2020 Mayflower, Coin from United Kingdom
CoinGold Ounce 2020 Mayflower

Like many other mints, the Royal Mint issues bullion coins in precious metals, having much higher intrinsic value than their face value. The one ounce (1 oz) gold coins are denominated as One Hundred Pounds (£100).

The coins are legal tender but are not intended for circulation. They are targeted at bullion investors or collectors who appreciate the special editions as pieces of art. The coins are typically "one-year" types usually issued in parallel with smaller denominations with the same reverse designs.

This gold one-ounce coin denominated as £100 commemorates the 400th Anniversary of the voyage of the Mayflower.

When 102 passengers sailed on the Mayflower from Plymouth, England, on 16 September 1620, their sights were set on a fresh start. They landed in Plymouth Bay over three months later and by spring, just under half of those who had landed in the New World had survived. The original Thanksgiving feast was held that autumn, after their first successful harvest, and the spirit of the Mayflower pilgrims endures in this national celebration to this day.

The epic story of the journey of the Mayflower is told through the design by US designer Chris Costello:
“The process of this design began with historical research and visits to the museums in Plymouth, Massachusetts, then I formulated visions in my mind of what this coin would look like. Many of the features and details of the ship were imaginary... There is a bit of mythical interpretation of the Mayflower story, since nobody really knows what the ship actually looked like. I wanted to create a romantic view with stylized waves that contrasted with the precarious position of the ship in rough seas, thus making an iconic and memorable design; a contemporary coin with subtle traditional beauty that both British and Americans would appreciate and want to own as a keepsake in memory of this historic event.”

These coins were issued as part of a commemorative series which is a collaboration between the United States Mint and the Royal Mint, with all the designs in the series being by the same artist. The coins were issued in Proof FDC grade only.

Obverse
United Kingdom / Gold Ounce 2020 Mayflower - obverse photo

The obverse of the coin depicts the crowned old head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right, wearing the Royal Diamond Diadem crown worn for her Coronation (effigy known as the "Fifth Portrait").

Running continuously around the effigy is the monarch's legend and the date: ELIZABETH II · D · G · REG · F · D · 100 POUNDS ·. Translated from Latin: Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen, Defender of the Faith, followed by the value and denomination in English.

In small letters below the head, the artist's initials J.C (for Jody Clark).

Reverse
United Kingdom / Gold Ounce 2020 Mayflower - reverse photo

The reverse of the coin shows a sailing ship under sail, in rough seas shown by the waves below it. The ship is guided by the North Star, seen through the rigging on the left.

Around above, separated by the flags on the two masts of the ship, the anniversary dates 1620 and 2020. Around below, separated from the dates by two flowers, the name of the ship MAYFLOWER.

The designer's initials CTC (for Chris Costello) are to the right of the ship, under one of the sails.

The face value and denomination are on the obverse.
