Silver Medal - Catalonia

Carterita Cataluña. Abre en ventana nueva.

Medalla de Plata de Cataluña. Abre en ventana nueva.

This sterling silver medal pays tribute to the region of Catalonia, which is formed by the provinces of Barcelona (capital of the region), Girona, Lleida and Tarragona.

During the Middle Ages Catalonia was one of the territories that composed the legacy of the king of Aragon, subsequently known as the Crown of Aragon (upon uniting the kingdom of Aragon and the County of Barcelona) that commenced with Alphonse II, the son of the count of Barcelona, Ramon Berenguer IV, and Petronilla, the daughter of Ramiro of Aragon.

Catalonia has an abundant artistic heritage, a large part of which has been classified as World Heritage by the UNESCO.

The obverse of the coin displays the coat-of-arms of the Catalonian Autonomous Region.

The reverse features the crowned letter "M", the Mint Mark of the Spanish Royal Mint.

Silver Medal - Autonomous City of Ceuta

Carterita Ceuta. Abre en ventana nueva.

Medalla de la Ciudad Autónoma de Ceuta. Abre en ventana nueva.

This medal in sterling silver is dedicated to Ceuta, an autonomous city belonging to Spain which accommodates a mix of different cultures: Christian, Muslim, Hindu and Jew.

Ceuta has a history of over two thousand years and was inhabited at different times by many peoples: Carthaginians of Phoenician origin, Romans, Vandals, Visigoths, Byzantines, Berbers, Mauritanians, Arabs, Portuguese and Spaniards, to name a few. The founding of the city dates back to Roman times. It played an important role during the Moorish expansion into the Iberian Peninsula, and in the year 711 it was the port of entry for the troops that overpowered Tarifa. Centuries later it would belong to the Almoravid and the Almohad dynasties. Ceuta was incorporated into the Spanish Crown under Phillip II in 1580. It became an Autonomous City in 1995.

The obverse of the medal displays the autonomous coat-of-arms.

The reverse features the crowned letter "M", the Mint Mark of the Spanish Royal Mint.
