  1. The significance was that although he searched a wide area of the American southwest, Coronado pretty much proved that there were no "cities of gold" there. He also found the Grand Canyon. Ironically, today the Grand Canyon is a "city of gold" with millions of tourist dollars spent there annually.

  2. He was one of the New World's major explorers. You should easily be able to see significance? Just look at the maps in here -- and notice the dates (compare dates with Columbus's first journey):
