2 Euro commemorative coin - First Roudn-the-World Trip
The year 2022 marks the 500th anniversary of the expedition's arrival in Spain, and a commemorative €2 coin has been minted to mark this event.
In 1519 Juan Sebastián de Elcano learned of the project being prepared by the Portuguese sailor Ferdinand Magellan to discover a route to the East Indies from the west and enlisted in Magellan's expedition. His experience as a seafarer earned him a relatively important position in the expedition: he was appointed master of the Concepción, one of the five ships that made up the squadron.
On 20 September 1519, the expedition left Sanlúcar de Barrameda and set sail to find the sea passage to the territories of the East Indies and to search for the way to the Spice Islands, the so-called westward route, which Christopher Columbus had already sought.
After Magellan's death in the Philippines in 1521, Juan Sebastián de Elcano was appointed captain of the ship Victoria and eventually took command of the return expedition. After crossing the Indian Ocean and circumnavigating Africa, he became the first person to complete the circumnavigation of the globe, as he managed to complete the expedition and reach the port of departure, Sanlúcar de Barrameda, on 6 September 1522 on the ship Victoria, together with 17 other survivors, which was an impressive feat for the time.
