The Rwanda Nautical Ounce series was introduced in 2017, with the launch of the Santa Maria edition, followed in 2018 by the HMS Endeavour, and in 2019 with the Victoria.

Now entering its fourth year, this 2020 Rwanda 1 oz Silver Nautical Ounce Mayflower BU is released in commemoration of the 400th anniversary of the fateful voyage of the Mayflower in 1620.

This fourth edition of the Rwanda Nautical Ounce series is not only a stunning example of extraordinary design and pristine production, but also represents a remarkable period in the history of the world.

Mayflower Sets Sail For New World

As a legal tender offering by Rwanda, the obverse displays a large image of the Coat of Arms of the Republic of Rwanda centered, with inscriptions encircling the rim, including “BANKI NKURU Y’U RWANDA AMAFARANGA MIRONGO ITANU.” The face value of 50 Francs is also included.

The reverse features the merchant ship, Mayflower braving the strong gales of the open Atlantic, under full sails. Following the basic design layout of the first three releases of the Nautical Ounce series, the ship is accompanied by a large highly-stylized compass set to the left, with navigational markings across the background. The wide rim-band includes the inscriptions “NAUTICAL OUNCE . 2020 . 1 oz FINE SILVER 999.” Superimposing the background markings and the band at the top is a small elliptical inset that includes nautical equipment consistent with the period. At the bottom, rough waters from under the ship splash out into the rim-band, creating a nice action effect. Within the splash is inscribed “Mayflower.”
