The image on the federal five dollar bank note inspired the Pilgrim Tercentenary Issue's 2-cent stamp, the Landing of the Pilgrims. The Mayflower appears in the distant background.
The 2-cent Landing of the Pilgrims stamp most often paid the two-cent first class domestic rate. Patrons also used it with other denominations to fulfill large weight and foreign destination rates. An estimated 196 million 2-cent stamps were printed by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing and issued to the public.
