The Spanish flower is a type of coin flan shape. It consists of a smooth edge separated into equal sections by seven indents.[1][2] At least two coin issuers, the European Union and Fiji, have mentioned explicitly that the Spanish flower shape was chosen to help the visually-impaired. However, the Polish commemorative coin has different technical specifications than the circulation issue, which makes it impractical in daily use. Therefore, the Spanish flower shape has novelty value only on this coin.

The Spanish 50 peseta coins issued between 1990 and 2000 were the first[citation needed] to feature the Spanish flower shape.
