Coin is situated in the fertile valley of the Rio Grande approximately 21 km inland from Marbella and there is little doubt that a community of some kind existed on the spot long before the Roman conquest. Nevertheless, it was the Romans who gave it the first name which has survived: Lacibis. It became a market town, a transition point for the minerals being quarried 5 kilometres or so to the south in the Sierra Blanca. Marble from these quarries was certainly used in the construction of the Roman town of Italica, which once stood close to Seville, and was the birthplace in 76 AD of the future emperor, Hadrian.
One of the most picturesque yet solemn places in this town of Malaga is the shrine of Nuestra Señora de Fuensanta. The beautifully preserved chapel stands on top of a hill beside the ground which is used for the annual fair. The situation and views are magnificent, but the sombre note is struck by the now-abandoned house which stands close by in a field. In 1893 it was the site of a brutal murder in which the local priest was shot by intruders who believed him to have hidden away a cache of money. The story of the crime and its aftermath were told in Bartolomé Abelendas book, The Coin Crime.
