    Navigator on Spanish Money?
    From: Lu Abel
    Date: 2001 May 26, 9:30 PM

    Recently, I was in Spain. Spanish money, rather than having pictures of
    dead politicians like US money, has pictures of people famous in Spanish
    history. For example, Pizzaro and Cortez are on the 1,000 peseta note and
    Columbus is on the  5,000 peseta note.
    
    Now here's my mystery. The 10,000 peseta note (equivalent to about $60 US)
    has a picture of a gentlemen named Jorge Juan.  Judging by his clothing
    he's from the 1700s. He's surrounded by what look like navigational
    instruments.
    
    I've tried a Web search on him, but without success.  If there's anyone on
    the list who can shed some light on this mystery figure, I'd appreciate it.
