The Fábrica Nacional de Moneda Timbre Real Casa de la Moneda has launched the first Spanish bullion coin on Dec. 1The Reverse Proof 1-ounce .999 fine gold coin is denominated €1.5, an unusually low denomination for a gold bullion coin of the world.The reverse depicts the head of an Iberian lynx. In addition, the face value (€1.5) appears, with the year date of issue (2021) and the crowned symbol of the Spanish Mint.The coin's obverse features imagery borrowed from the famous Spanish silver "piece of eight" coin, which circulated around the globe for more than two centuries.The 2021 coin appropriates the Pillars of Hercules design that represents the two hemispheres meeting, with two globes crowned over the seas, and the legend PLVS VLTRA appearing on ribbons mounted on opposite pillars.Legends identify Spain's current monarch, Felipe VI, and the coin's weight and fineness.

The coin weighs 31.21 grams and measures 37 millimeters in diameter. The inaugural issue has a mintage limit of 12,000 coins, each delivered encapsulated.

The official price is set by law in Spain Spot+10% but there are a lot people in Spain that is buying the coin because is the first of the serie and his quality. Maybe the price is high very soon.

The FNMT (Royal Spanish Mint) has said that there will be an annual edition of the Lynx Doubloon, but this one of 2021 will forever be the first.

Do you think this coin will be successful in the United States? In Spain the numismatics fans have a real buying fever and it is said that it can be sold out in a few weeks.

The FNMT has said that it is already being sold in the USA.

I haven't seen this advertised or posted about anywhere except here. As word gets out about the coin I think the interest would be there.

It's a kitty cat, and stackers - well, some stackers anyway - like kitty cats.

Yes, I think we all like cats. :)
I believe that the intention of the FNMT is that the first print run, of only 12000 copies, does not reach many people so that it is revalued and gives fame to the following print runs, which will be larger.
I am glad to have shared this information with you while the coin has just gone on sale.

I think that this is the original Lynx



Perhaps she is willing to kill to defend her children. It is a good symbol for something that has to defend your wealth.
I think the lynx has been a good design idea.

I usually can't afford gold, but I might make an exception for this coin. To the wife: "But honey, it's a kitty cat!"
