This is the eleventh coin of the UNESCO World Heritage series in Spain and features the bell tower  of the church of San Martín in Teruel.This was declared a World Heritage Site in 1986.

The word MUDÉJAR appears on the coin and this refers to Muslims who came under the rule of the Christian kingdoms in Spain during the Reconquista.They contributed greatly to the regional architecture with many islamic features on the buildings such as horseshoe arches.
The Mudejar style flourished from the 14th to the 16th centuries.

The motif of the coin shows the bell tower - Torre de El Salvador of the church of San Martín in Teruel which is reputed to have been built around 1320.
