The last time El Gordo had smiled at León was in 2014, thanks to 13,437 when a Boñar administration sold a complete series of this number that was awarded the first prize in the Extraordinary Christmas Draw.
The vignette of the tenth of this year corresponded to an image of the Virgin with the Child, the central panel of the altarpiece of the Life of the Virgin and of Saint Francis, which is currently in the Prado Museum. However, the painting that illustrates the millions of tenths issued comes from the church of Santa Eulalia de Hinojo, a stately estate near La Bañeza and which is a Gothic work by the painter Nicolás Francés, dating from the mid-15th century.
