Description of obverse and reverse The motifs that had to be portrayed on the coins were the following:  “...the said full excelentes shall portray on the one side our Royal Arms, clasped by an Eagle, and surrounded by lettering that states: Sub umbra alarum tuarum protege nos, and on the other side two facial likenesses, each including the shoulders, one being of the King, and the other being of the Queen, each in accordance with the other, and surrounded by letters stating: Ferdinandus et Elisabeth Dei gratia Rex et Regina Castellae et Legionis…” “…and the reales shall portray on the one side our Royal Arms, and on the other side the device of the King's yoke, and the device of the Queen's arrows, surrounded by the statement and continuing on both sides: Ferdinandus et Elisabeth Rex et Regina Castellae, et Legionis, et Aragonum, et Siciliae, et Granatae, or as much of this as can be included…” The obverse reproduces, within a circle centered on the coin, the obverse of a Real coin issued by the Catholic Monarchs and minted in Burgos. With the classic coin equivalent of eight reales, this coin devotes its entire reverse ground to a reproduction of the Real coin issued by the Catholic Monarchs and minted in Burgos.
A brief annotation The Fifth issue in this series of collector coins entitled “Numismatic Treasures” is dedicated to the Pragmatica y Reales Ordenanzas (the Pragmatic and Royal Ordinances) promulgated in Medina del Campo in 1497 by the Catholic Monarchs. Spain's modern monetary history originated with the reform proclaimed by the Catholic Monarchs in the above-mentioned 1497 Pragmatic, that would set values for and stabilize the characteristics of the gold and silver coins (the excelente, the medio excelente and the silver real) that were allowed to be minted by the different mints in the Spanish peninsula, together with the coin designs and rates of exchange with the coinage of other European countries, particularly with those lying within the area of the ducat which, having been created in Venice, had become unrestricted coinage in the Mediterranean area.

Завораживает смотреть на современные монеты, на которых отчеканены деньги давних лет!

На настоящие монеты давно ушедших эпох всегда смотреть интересно  , однако в данном случае  мало выразительности , на  ординарных монетах Израиля тоже чеканят изображения древних монет Иудеи , однако к раритетам их не отнесешь . Подводя итог , за сохранение монетной истории 10 баллов , за отсуствие оригинальных идей минус 5 баллов итого 5 баллов из 10 , думаю достойная оценка для этой монеты .
