QuoteNational sidesSpain – EspañaThe €1 and €2 coins show a portrait of His Majesty King Juan Carlos I de Borbón y Borbón. The edge lettering on the €2 coin is '2**' repeated six times, alternately upright and inverted.The 10, 20 and 50-cent coins show the bust of Miguel de Cervantes, author of Don Quixote of La Mancha, a masterpiece of Spanish and world literature.The 1, 2 and 5-cent coins show the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, a jewel of Spanish Romanesque art and one of the most famous places of pilgrimage in the world.The national designs of the Spanish euro coins were selected by the then Head of Government José María Aznar.In 2010, Spain will revise the design of its national sides in order to comply with the common guidelines recommended by the European Commission, as endorsed by the Council conclusions of 10 February 2009. The new national sides will continue to bear the same effigy of His Majesty King Juan Carlos I, but the date of issuance will now feature in the inner part of the coin, together with the mintmark and the name of the issuing country. The twelve stars in the outer ring will now be depicted as on the European flag, with no raised section around them.Coins from previous years featuring the old design will nevertheless remain valid.
