Tristan da Cunha, Crown (Ferdinand Magellan) Proof Silver Plated
Born in 1480 Ferdinand Magellan would grow up to be one of the most famous and competent Portuguese explorers. Portugal was a small country but known for the competency of its sailors. Magellan went on to live in Portuguese India or Goa for eight years before setting out to search for a passage to the Spice Islands. In 1521 he went around South America and found the Spice Island. He continued on and became the first person to circle the globe. This beautiful diamond-shaped Crown from Tristan da Cunha honours this great explorer. You have Magellan on one side with his sailing ship and steering wheel and H. M. the Queen on the other side. Each Crown is heavily silver plated, in Proof condition and comes in a diamond-shaped protective capsule. The price will also please you and if you are a ship collector, you will need this coin.
