On 21 October 2014, Victoriano Muñoz Cava, president of Fundación Juanelo Turriano
and Clara Luquero, Mayor of Segovia, unveiled the new roller press at the city’s Royal Mint Museum.
This device was instrumental to minting the coins produced at the facility founded by King Philip II in the sixteenth century.
Like the waterwheels that drive the drop hammer and bellows in the smith’s shop, this roller press was built thanks to an agreement between Fundación Juanelo Turriano
and the city of Segovia. It was designed by industrial master craftsman Jorge Soler and engineer José María Izaga based on contemporary documents and constructed by joiner Miguel Ángel Moreno.
