As told in the Curse of the Black Pearl, Captain Jack Sparrow faces mutiny by his crew members and is abandoned on an island before the mutineer crew find a chest of cursed coins.

How is it then possible that he ends up being cursed?

Actually Captain Jack Sparrow didn't get cursed when his old crew found the aztec gold.

What you may think of is a point in the movie where he gets undead for short time.In the cave while Barbossa and Jack negotiated Jack stole one aztec coin from the chest getting himself cursed untill he returned it.

Here you can read fairly detailed plot in case you missed something.

He wasn't cursed to begin with, it was only near the end of the film when he takes a coin directly from the chest that he gets cursed.
