Juan de Zubileta was one of the members of Ferdinand Magellan's expedition to circumnavigate the globe, which began in Seville on 10 August 1519. Zubileta, from Barakaldo, was one of the eighteen men who managed to complete the expedition, reaching Sanlúcar de Barrameda on 6 September 1522, on the Victoria, along with 17 other survivors.

An educated boy, he knew how to read and write in romance ( old Spanish ). At the age of 15 he embarked on the Maluco commercial expedition on the ship Victoria and was 18 years old when he landed back in Sanlúcar de Barrameda. He died in Valladolid at the age of 22.

The stamp reproduces a part of the painting The Landing of Elcano in Sevilla in which the youngest Juan De Zubileta is located.It was made in 1922 by Elias Salaverria to commemorate the IV Centenary of the First Around the World (1522-1922) by the Guetaria sailor Juan Sebastián de Elcano.
