In June 2008 the Spanish Line-up was pronounced the champion of the European UEFA Football Cup after winning the finals contested in Vienna. Spain had not been recorded on the champion's list since 1964.
To commemorate this victory of Spain's Supreme Football Team the Spanish Royal Mint has struck a new set composed of one coin in sterling silver and one in .999 gold.
Minted in Proof quality, the collector coins come in stylish jewel cases. The coins may be acquired individually boxed, or as the full set with both coins in the same presentation case.
