A new series of collector coins was set under way in 2008 and given the name "Numismatic Treasures". This series will reproduce outstanding pieces from Spanish numismatics and will be continued in forthcoming years.
For this first edition, dedicated to the Roman aureus and the Greek drachma, the Spanish Royal Mint proceeded to strike a coin in .999 gold which, together with the double 4-reales coin in silver, makes up this new set.
Minted in Proof quality, the collector coins in this first series of Numismatic Treasures come in stylish jewel cases.
