History, innovation and artistic beauty converge on this 2021 $5 Barbados three-ounce fine-silver coin commemorating Ferdinand Magellan. Credited as the first person to circumnavigate the world 500 years ago, the Portuguese navigator planned and led the 1519 Spanish expedition which sailed around South America and across the Pacific. Although Magellan was killed in a conflict in the Phillipines, one of his ships completed the trip around the globe, returning to Spain in 1521. Mintage of this alluring coin is limited to just 999 pieces.

The Design:

Adding to its visual appeal, the coin features an interactive gold-plated centre element which allows you to take the helm of Magellan's ship. The coin comes with a special protective finish instead of a capsule allowing you to steer the ship. The outer portion of the coin features an antique finish image of Magellan, one of his ships and a part of Magellan's route around the globe. The obverse includes the coat of arms of Barbados, plus the date, denomination, 3 oz silver weight and .999 fineness. The coin presentation is completed with a deluxe wooden case with certificate of authenticity within a commemorative outer box.
