The coin with the controversial image of Princess Leonor goes on sale today


As of today, the 30-euro coin commemorating the 1300th anniversary of the Kingdom of Asturias is available to the public at banks and the rest of the credit institutions, where an effigy of Princess Leonor appears for the first time. controversial for its apparent lack of realism.

The obverse shows the left profile of the heiress of the Crown next to that of Felipe VI and, when this new collection coin was presented last July, the image received criticism because, unlike the effigy of his father, it was difficult to recognize in it the authentic features of the Princess of Asturias.

The National Factory of Currency and Stamp (FNMT) had planned to mint a maximum of one million of these new silver and copper coins, which on their reverse reproduce, in color, the Principality's coat of arms on a ribbon with the colors of the flag of Spain, accompanied by the legend "1,300 anniversary of the Kingdom of Asturias" in a circular sense.

"Felipe VI and Leonor Princess of Asturias" is, on the other hand, the legend that surrounds on the obverse the effigies of the King and the heiress of the Crown, together with the word "Spain" and the year of minting "2018".
