Description

The lion's head mailbox, historical of Correos, now in the form of a keychain. Always take it with you!

Until 1762 there were no mailboxes in Spain to deposit the letters, but they were delivered by hand to the person in charge of the mail. That year, an official provision established to open: "hole or fence, in all the Hijuelas or Veredas, where the cards are thrown, without being able to be received in hand." Since then, and over the years, the mailboxes of Correos have varied their forms, decorative motifs and materials used in their manufacture. The most represented element was the lion's head, as a symbol of courage and bizarreness, and animal that best keeps the correspondence deposited in it.

On its obverse the classic image of the lion's mouth mailbox and on its reverse the new Correos logo.
