“In 2020 The Royal Mint commemorates the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower voyage with a vibrantly designed coin.”

Here is video promoting the 2020 Mayflower coin that I designed for The Royal Mint. One note about this design is that I had the opportunity to draw the date and inscription by hand so the serifs and horizontal strokes of each character would conform to the curvature of the coin… an esthetic nuance that is commonly overlooked in coin and medal design. Swashes compliment the nautical theme. (1:06)
