Spanish coin dating
Between 1868 and 1982 most Spanish coins displayed two dates.  The larger date was the year that coin type was authorized while the actual year of mintage is displayed in small font on one or two stars included in the design.  The 100 Peseta coin at right was authorized in 1975 but was actually minted in 1976.

Sometimes just the last digit of the year is displayed as with this 1 Centimo coin minted in 1906.









Of course this can make it difficult to determine the date on well circulated pieces.

Exact Change lists these coins with both dates, so the above coin is listed as 1975(1976).
