MadridUpdated:

From today it is available to the public in banks and the rest of credit institutions the 30 euro coin commemorating the 1,300th anniversary of the Kingdom of Asturias, 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 she the authentic features of the Princess of Asturias.

The National Currency and Stamp Factory (FNMT) had planned coin a maximum of one million of these new coins of silver and copper, that in their reverse they reproduce, in color, the shield of the Principality on a ribbon with the colors of the flag of Spain, accompanied all by the legend «1,300 anniversary 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 coinage "2018".
