The STS Sedov was built as a German sailing vessel in 1921. The ship was based in Bremen with the F.A. Vinnen & Co. shipping company. On its maiden voyage, it set sail from Bremen for Buenos Aires, Argentina. On that maiden trip, the ship was carrying coal from England, timber from Finland, wheat from Australia, and pyrite from Italy. Then known as the Magdalene Vinnen II, the ship was renamed the STS Sedov when its ownership was transferred to the Soviet Union as part of German war reparations following World War II.
2021 Rwandan Sedov Nautical Ounce 1 oz Silver Coins are available to you for purchase in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The coins ship individually in plastic pouches and by multiples of 10 in sealed plastic sheets.
