The Spanish deck of cards differs from its British and American counterpart, known in Spain as the baraja francesa. The four Spanish suits, oros, copas, espadas and bastos ("golden coins", "goblets", "swords" and "clubs") each contain nine numbered cards, although for certain games only seven are used, and three picture cards: sota, caballo and rey (jack, queen, king).
