Coin

Coín is a town and municipality in the Province of Málaga, Spain, c. 33 km west of the provincial capital, Málaga, and about 30 km north of Marbella. The town has an official population of 22,000 inhabitants.Foreigners now make up a substantial proportion of the town's inhabitants and are attracted to Coín because it is only 25 minutes from the beaches of Málaga and Marbella, including the 50 km stretch of coastline in between which includes the popular resorts of Torremolinos, Fuengirola and Benalmádena.HistoryThe town was ruled by he Moors and the Romans, with the Moors defining and controlling the town from 929 AD until 1485 when the Christians invaded and took control of Coín.EconomyThe economy was traditionally agriculture, coexisting with marble mining and ceramics. The latter has been during the twentieth century very important and known, having a color style of its own called "Green Coin". The most significant ceramics workshop during the past century was the Workshop "Cumbreras" and now work is continuing this traditional ceramic material of Coin, with over 300 years old by local artisans.Cinema cityThe city of cinema was a project carried out in the area of Nacimiento to produce a television series, but was turned into a tourist area as well. For many years, Coín was the setting for several series, first the British Eldorado for the BBC, and after that the Andalusian Plaza Alta soap operas and "Arrayan", both recorded in Loasur studios produced by Linze TV, and shown by Canal Sur. Tourism, construction, and the hospitality industry have replaced old industries, although there are still many potters and several quarries where local marble, dolomite rock and sand are produced for construction materials.
