In 2015 the 2-euro commemorative coin will be dedicated to the Cueva de Altamira, which has won the title of World Heritage. The obverse of the coin is an image of this place.

This is now the sixth coin in the annual series dedicated to UNESCO-listed World Heritage sites in Spain.

Illes Balears Medal

This is the Spanish Autonomous Community that encompasses the islands of the Balearic archipelago lying in the Mediterranean Sea off the east coast of the Spanish mainland. It consists of two island groups: the Gymnesian Islands (Minorca, Majorca, Cabrera and a few islets like Conejera and Dragonera) and the Pityusic Islands (Ibiza and Formentera).

These islands reflect the influences of the Carthaginian, Roman and Islamic periods (in chronological order) in addition to the effect of the Crown of Catalonia-Aragon after the conquest of Jaume I.

La Rioja Medal

This is Spain's Autonomous Community located in the north of the Iberian Peninsula. Its northern area covers part of the Ebro Basin and its southern stretch blankets the Iberian Mountain Range. Composed of a single province, its capital is Logroño. The Community adjoins the Basque Country to the north, Navarre to the north-west, Aragon to the south-west and the Autonomous Community of Castile and Leon to the west and south.

It is the ancient territory of pre-Roman peoples: the Berones, Pelendones and Vascones. After recapture from the Muslims in the early 10th century, the region became part of the Kingdom of Pamplona. Following many years of disputes, it was incorporated into the region of Castile. In 1833 it was formed into the province of Logroño, subsequently undergoing a change of name to that of La Rioja in 1980 as a prior step leading to its constitution as an Autonomous Community in 1982 following the adoption of the Charter of San Millan.
