Explorer and navigator Christopher Columbus (1451 - 1506) was born in Genoa, Italy. Under the patronage of the Spanish royal family, he completed four voyages across the Atlantic Ocean. These efforts established permanent settlements and initiated Spanish colonization of the New World. Through this, Columbus has been credited as opening up the Americas to European trade.

Though we now believe Columbus was not the first European explorer to reach the Americas, his voyages generated lasting European contact with the New World. This inaugurated a period of European exploration, conquest, trade and colonization that was to last for centuries.

This antique-finished, fully engraved and high-relief 2oz silver coin captures the exhilarating moment Christopher Columbus first lands on a beach in the New World in 1492. The packaging of a protective draw string sack has been designed to model the transport materials used to trade around the globe at that time.

The New Zealand Mint will release no more than 2,000 of the 2015 Journeys Of Discovery - Christopher Columbus 2oz Silver Coin.
