This is the new 30 euro coin that is already in circulation

On the occasion of the celebration of the Jacobean Holy Year 21-22, the Royal Mint, dependent on the National Currency Factory, has printed a new 30-euro coin. It is a collector’s item, that is, it cannot be used as a payment method.

The new commemorative coin is a piece of 925 sterling silver and copper with a diameter of 33 centimeters and a weight of 18 grams. On the obverse, the piece shows the effigies of King Felipe VI and Letizia, and on the polychrome reverse, a pilgrim walks following the sign of the scallop shell, the symbol of the apostle, towards the cathedral of Santiago.

Lovers of numismatics can now expand their collection with the new commemorative coin for the CXX festivity of Santiago Apóstol, available for 30 euros at entities collaborating with La Real Casa de La Moneda and soon at the Post Office network. The public entity plans to mint up to a maximum of one million units until 2022, depending on demand.

Since 1993, the Royal Mint has been commemorating the most important event of the year by issuing a 30-euro silver coin. In 2020, the entity wanted to dedicate its commemorative coin to the “coronavirus heroes”, its staff “thanks to all the people and professional groups that have stood out the most in the fight against the COVID-19 disease in our country”.
