Description

The coin is dedicated to the 500th anniversary of the first circumnavigation of the world.

Juan Sebastian Elcano (1486-1526) made the first round-the-world voyage on the ship Victoria as part of the expedition of Ferdinand Magellan to the Spice Islands (Moluccas).

His success in traveling to the Spice Islands led to another great expedition, this time led by the nobleman Garcia Jofre de Loaysa, but this mission was unsuccessful and Elcano died during it in the Pacific Ocean.

The coin depicts Elcano in period clothing, with lines in the background indicating the latitude and longitude of the globe.
