For more than 40 years, the UNESCO (the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) lists the sites that are part of the “world heritage cultural property sites”. Since 2007, Monnaie de Paris honours various monuments included in this list in a series of collector coins. From 2019, this thematic is expanding one more time all over the world.

This issue pays tribute to one of the first explorers to have undertaken and succeeded in a world tour, Fernand de Magellan (1480-1521), and the 500th anniversary of his death.

On the obverse of this coin is engraved the portrait of Fernando de Magellan, Portuguese navigator and explorer.

The Victoria sailing the seas and oceans is shown on the coin. It was the first ship to navigate the globe on its expedition to the Molucca Islands. This is expressed by the world map in the background, which also shows the route taken by Magellan and his crew. The parallels and meridians are also represented. The "500 years" symbolize the tribute of his passing.The face value is inscribed at the bottom center of the coin.

The reverse depicts the Convent of Christ in the city of Tomar in Portugal. More precisely, it shows the window of the central nave decorated with numerous motifs in the Manueline style, in particular "ropes" reminiscent of those used on ships during the era of the great discoveries.
