On May 22, 2004 His Royal Highness the Prince of Asturias, Felipe de Borbon y Grecia, married Letizia Ortiz Rocasolano.
To mark this important event the Spanish Royal Mint joined forces with the Post Office for the combined release of this special edition which includes the souvenir stamp sheet, the 12-Euro coin and the postage stamp commemorating the nuptials.
On the same day as the Royal Wedding took place in Madrid, the World Stamp exhibition-Spain 2004 opened its doors in Valencia.
The Post Office opted to commemorate both of these events with the release of a souvenir sheet of three postage stamps plus three vignettes of no postal value dedicated to the Monarchy.
