How did the Golden Fleece end up in Colchis?

The story of the Golden Fleece
All of a sudden, during the sacrifice, a winged creature with a golden fleece appeared and took the two children away on its back to the far away land of Colchis. While flying over the sea, tragically Helle fell off the creature's back and drowned.

Watch out a lot more about it. Consequently, where does the Golden Fleece end up?

The task is for Jason to retrieve the Golden Fleece, kept beyond the edge of the known world in a land called Colchis (modern-day Georgia in Southwest Asia). The story of the fleece is an interesting tale in itself. Zeus, the King of the Gods, had given a golden ram to Jason's ancestor Phrixus.

Subsequently, question is, what happens to Pelias after Jason returns with the Golden Fleece? She gives him a potion that makes him harmless for a day, and he is able to complete the task without being killed. What happens to Pelias after Jason returns with the Golden Fleece? Pelias refuses to give Jason the kingdom back, so Medea tricks his daughters into killing him.

One may also ask, why was Jason searching for the Golden Fleece?

The reason why Jason needed to find the Golden Fleece in the first place is because of the order given by Pelias. So, since Pelias most likely felt threatened by Jason, he didn't want him anywhere near Iolcus. Pelias sent him on an impossible mission, to fetch the Golden Fleece from the King Aeetes of Colchis.

What is Golden Fleece in Merchant of Venice?
