To commemorate the 5th Centennary of the First Circumnavigation of the World, the Royal Mint of Spain issues a silver coin, being the second of the four coins of this same metric that, for this reason, are issued annually (one per year).

On the obverse, two images of Juan Sebastián Elcano and Fernando de Magallanes, taken from the portraits of both housed at the Naval Museum of Madrid, are reproduced. Above these images, a rose of the winds. On the right, inside an oval, detail of the head of the sculptural work entitled "Carlos V", made by Leone and Pompeo Leoni, which is kept in the Prado Museum, Madrid; below, the legend CARLOS V . On the top of the coin, the legend ESPAÑA 2020. In the lower part of the coin, the legends ELCANO and MAGALLANES. Occupying all the bottom of the coin, some lines as a grid of winds.

On the reverse, an image, in colours, is reproduced reminiscent of the journey made by Magellan and Elcano to go around the world, with the allegory of Mare Tenebrarum (Sea of Darkness), the name at that time of the Atlantic Ocean. On the top of the coin, the face value of the piece, 10 EURO. On the left, the mint mark. In the lower part of the coin the legend V CENTENARIO DE LA VUELTA AL MUNDO.
