Coin Story

Fernão do Pó was a Portuguese nautical pioneer who, by order of King Alfonso V., explored the Gulf of Guinea in the 15th century. In 1472 he came across an island of volcanic origin on the coast of West Africa which was named after him until 1973. Nowadays, the island belonging to Equatorial Guinea is known as Bioko. Malabo is not only the cultural and economic centre of the island, but also the capital city of the only Spanish-speaking country in Africa. Due to various other discoveries, Fernão do Pó made a significant contribution to impart a more realistic image of Africa’s geography to the Europe of his day.
