Commemorative Coin with Poor Likeness of Spain’s Princess Leonor Goes on Sale

MADRID – A special issue coin commemorating the 1,300th anniversary of the founding of the Iberian kingdom of Asturias went on sale on Monday bearing what some observers have called a poor representation of the elder daughter of the kings of Spain.

Leonor, Princess of Asturias, who is first in line to inherit the Spanish throne, appears for the first time engraved on a coin alongside the profile of her father, King Felipe VI.

The 30 euro ($34), 18 gram (0.6 ounces) silver coin shows the left profile of what looks more like a grown woman than a 12-year-old girl.

When the collectible coin was first presented in July, the artwork was criticized because it was extremely difficult to recognize the princess, while the king’s face reflected a true likeness.

The Spanish Mint intends to mint up to one million coins whose reverse side shows a coat of arms representing Spain’s oldest principality, combined with the Spanish flag and a circular legend that reads: “1,300 anniversary of the Kingdom of Asturias.”

The legend on the coin’s obverse side reads, “Felipe VI y Leonor Princesa de Asturias” including the word “España” (Spain)” and the year it was minted; 2018.

The coin includes the latest safety measures including a laser-cut quadruple latent image.
