10 euro – The Europa Program - Peace and Freedom

Series: Spain – European Silver Programme

In 2004, and coinciding with the expansion of the European Union, several Mints in the old continent joined together in the Europa numismatic program with a view to issuing collector coins under a common slogan. In 2005 the motto elected for this second set of coins is "Peace and Freedom". Two coins were minted in proof quality, one in silver and one in gold. The obverse of the silver coin portrays the likeness of H.M. King Juan Carlos I. The reverse depicts hands clasped in a handshake and, incused over this image, the map of the European Union.
