The pilgrims were the epitome of "old money". They trusted no specie issued by tyrants. I hear the ballast of the Mayflower was all coin, especially pure silver and gold. Might not be true though, since I just made it up. -c

Looks like a great eye appeal coin, in photo and in hand. I really like that portrait.
