The earliest known maps date back to the 6th and 5th century B.C., assuming the flat Earth concept. World maps assuming a spherical Earth later appeared during the Hellenistic period. During the Age of Exploration, maps became increasingly accurate as explorers began to explore and discover new lands. Maps have been, and continue to be necessary tools to navigate the world and stir imagination for further exploration.

Christopher Columbus first sailed for "the Indies", which he believed was South Asia and East Asia in 1492. He instead reached an island after a five-week voyage, which is the present-day Bahamas. He also explored present-day Cuba and Hispaniola. His second voyage sighted various islands in the Caribbean, along with Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands in 1493. Finding the hypothesized continent of South America was Columbus's mission for his third voyage. He sighted Trinidad in 1498 and made landfall in present-day Venezuela, touching mainland South America. His fourth and final voyage involved exploring Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica.

Ferdinand Magellan, a Portuguese explorer, organized the first circumnavigation of the Earth. Beginning in 1519, they sailed for South America and reached present-day Brazil. His expedition was completed without him, due to his death mid-voyage. Sir Francis Drake led the second circumnavigation of the Earth in a single voyage, beginning in 1577. He helped claim present-day California for the English. Thomas Cavendish, also spelled Candish, departed England in 1586 and reached present-day Chile six months later.

A Great Gift

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

I love the map coins and having a proof and sovereign coin backed by a stable gov't. is a great value. This coin was also a great Mother's Day gift, which I gave to my mother because I got her interested in collecting bullion coins. It came packaged very well and inside a bag, which held the coin inside a display box. My mother was very pleased with the gift. I also ordered this coin for myself. I want to thank APMEX for including a nice note to my mother from my family.

  • Pros
  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Attractive Design
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Easy to Sell
  • Mint Condition
  • Recognized Brand
  • Bottom Line
  • Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
