Silver Medal - Castilla y León

Cartera con Medalla de Plata de Castilla y León

Medalla de Plata de Castilla y León

This sterling silver medal pays tribute to Castilla y León, an autonomous community comprising the provinces of Ávila, Burgos, León, Palencia, Salamanca, Segovia, Soria, Valladolid and Zamora.

The Autonomous Community of Castilla y León was created in 1983, arising from the unification of the historical territories that belonged to the ancient Crowns of Leon and of Castile, and hence providing its current name.

Castilla y León has been birthplace and/or home to prominent persons who have earned acclaim in the most wide-ranging aspects of human endeavor.

The obverse shows the autonomous coat-of-arms of Castilla y León, as defined in Article 5 of the Statute of Autonomy of Castilla y León, Spanish Constitutional Law 4/1983. The current coat-of-arms of Castilla y León remains unchanged from the insignia borne by King Fernando III the Saint, who in 1230 inherited the kingdom of Leon from his father and brought the Crowns of Castile and Leon together under one crown.

The reverse of the medal features the crowned letter "M" which is the mintmark of the Spanish Royal Mint.

Silver Medal - Castilla-La Mancha

Medalla de Plata de Castilla-La Mancha

This sterling silver medal is dedicated to Castilla-La Mancha, an autonomous community formed by the provinces of Albacete, Ciudad Real, Cuenca, Guadalajara and Toledo.

Castilla-La Mancha, heir to the ancient region of New Castile, took shape as a modern-day autonomous community on November 15, 1978. Its cultural and monumental heritage is huge.

The obverse shows the autonomous community's coat-of-arms, specified in Law 1/1983 dated June 30, and which is drawn from the Flag design created by Ramón José Maldonado Cocat and officially approved in 1980.

The reverse of this medal features the crowned letter "M" which is the mintmark of the Spanish Royal Mint.
