Portuguese navigator and explorer Ferdinand Magellan (1480 - 1521) is recognised as the man who, in the early 1500’s, led a fleet of Spanish ships on what is regarded as the ‘first circumnavigation of the world’.

Born in 1480 into a noble Portuguese family, Ferdinand Magellan became a court page in Lisbon following the early death of his parents. He became a skilled sailor and navigator at early age, taking part in the Portuguese expeditions to India and Africa.

This intricate antique-finished, fully engraved and high-relief 2oz coin depicts the moment Magellan became fatally involved in a tragic local dispute, in the Philippines on 27 April 1521. 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 2016 Journeys Of Discovery - Ferdinand Magellan 2oz Silver Coin.
