Each November, Americans celebrate the festival of Thanksgiving by gathering with family and friends to enjoy a large meal and give thanks for the blessings they have in this life. 400 years ago, the Pilgrims living in one of Britains first successful colonies in the New World sat down to the same kind of dinner, accompanied by members of the indigenous Wampanoag tribe.

The obverse of 2021 1 oz Proof First Thanksgiving 400th Anniversary Silver Coins features a portrait of that first celebratory meal. The Pilgrims had long celebrated bountiful fall harvests, and other events, with large meals together as a group. In October 1621, the Pilgrims had just such a meal in the New World as a celebration of the first successful harvest of crops by the colonists in North America. At this meal, some 90 members of the local Wampanoag tribe joined the Pilgrims for the feast.
On the reverse side of 2021 Proof First Thanksgiving 400th Anniversary Silver Coins is an image of the Pilgrims arriving in the New World. In this design, the Mayflower is anchored out in the bay silhouetted by the sun. Pilgrims on a small craft are rowing ashore as a member of the Wampanoag looks on from the rocky shoreline.
