    The spanish deck of cards is as follows:

    Oros (golden coins), Copas (goblets), Espadas (spades?? I'm not sure about this one) and Bastos (clubs)

    The three figures are: sota (jack), caballo (queen) and rey (king).

    Hope it helps.

    I suggest a search on the internet under "Playing Cards". The Wikipedia article is quite complete and informative.
