MINT MUSEUM'S JEWELS I (2023) 8 REALES 

Dedicated to mill coining technology. The water wheels of the Royal Mill of Segovia and the coining rollers are reproduced, similar to those from which the hundreds came. These rollers are also preserved in the Mint Museum.

This coin is reminiscent of the 2001 series that pays tribute to the Royal Ingenio of Segovia. In that series the 10.000 peseta coin represents a roller minting machine while the 500 peseta coin represents a water wheel. Here we have both motifs in one copy.
