Melilla
« on: August 09, 2017, 12:05:00 PM »
Melilla is a Spanish autonomous city located in Africa, sharing a border with Morocco. It consists of an area of 13 square kilometres. There are 80,000 people living in the city. It is a popular vacation destination amongst Africans, who usually like it so much that they never return home. One and only Russian fantasy design expert Vitaly Bakhtinov designed the piece, of which 200 specimens were made in some sweatshop in China. On the obverse the coat of arms of the city can be seen. On the reverse a canon can be seen on the fortress of Melilla  as well as the fake denomination of 500 pesetas. The piece is silver-plated.

Seems the designer figured that old walls look nicer on such medals than new fences ...
