The Spanish Post was granted by a Royal Warrant of King Philip V on July 13, 1716. Although originally used for the Kings correspondence and diplomatic dispatches, the warrant granted by the King eventually evolved into a national service, with a complete reorganization taking place by 1743.
Today, the Spanish Post is one of the largest postal services in the world. Headquartered in the national capital of Madrid, the Sociedad Estatal de Correos y Telegrafos has over 10,000 locations and offices throughout Spain.
On the obverse of the 2016 Spanish Silver Spanish Post coin is the left-profile portrait of the current King of Spain, Felipe VI. Text on this face of the coin features only the year of issue for the coin and the Kings full title of Felipe Vi Rey de Espana.
The reverse of the coin celebrates the tercentenary of the Spanish Post with an engraving of the crowned post horn in the center, which are finished in a brilliant hue of yellow. Above the image is that of postal elements including two different envelope sizes. The coins face value is engraved on this side.
Each of these 2016 Spanish Silver Spanish Post Coins is a product of the Royal Mint of Spain. Despite the long history of kingdoms in Spain, there was not an official sovereign mint until Philip V made coin minting a state monopoly in the 18th century.
