A new series of collector coins entitled 'Numismatic Treasures' was launched in 2008, the primary purpose being to reproduce some exceptional coins from Spain's numismatic collections.
This second set minted in 2009 is dedicated to the Centén and the Cincuentín. The set is composed of three coins, each of which reproduces a coin of a denomination that was issued in 1609 in the reign of Felipe III.
Minted in Proof quality, the collector coins in this second series of Numismatic Treasures are sold in stylish jewel cases.
The coins may be purchased either singly, or as the complete set of three coins.
