Description

This issue is dedicated to the last peseta and the last banknote, issued in Spain in 2001. A broadcast closely linked to the history of our country.

For 133 years the peseta was an active part of the economic and social history of Spain. It was born on October 19, 1868, with the aim of unifying the Spanish monetary system. Its creation meant the end of the coexistence of four different monetary systems, which, until then, worked at the same time in the day to day of the Spaniards.

The Decree creating the peseta, signed by the Minister of Finance at the time, Laureano Figuerola, established the issuance of 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 pesetas in gold; 1, 2 and 5 pesetas and 20 and 50 cents in silver; and 1,2,5 and 10 cents in bronze. Despite what this Decree dictated, gold coins were never minted.

The first peseta was minted in 1869. It was the 1 peseta coin, which had as its main motif the personification of Hispania, inspired by the coins that were used in the times of Emperor Hadrian. Hispania appeared lying on the Pyrenees, with the Rock of Gibraltar at its feet and holding an olive branch.

This same image is the protagonist of the issue that concerns us, in which the last coin of 100 pesetas appears, along with the stamp that represents the last banknote of 10,000 pesetas issued in our country in the year 2001.
