In bowl mix, sifting, the flour with the baking powder and set aside for when you need it.
In the bucket of a fixed mixer add the sugar and eggs and let them be beaten very well for a while. Add in steps the butter and zest. Beat for a while.
We integrate in three portions, in steps and alternately the flour mix with the baking powder, yogurt and juice. Just before the last flour dose close the mixer and mix the ingredients by hand using a spatula.
Add the almonds, the fruit glace and the walnuts.
Add the grated chocolate and incorporate the mixture gently with spatula.
Soak and drain the raisins. Flour them and add to the mixture of New Year cake. The mixture is quite viscous.
Grease well, cover with greaseproof paper, and flour a form Ø28-30cm (Ø11-11.8in), with detachable side. Pour half the mixture, place the coin at some point and above add the remaining mixture. Spread with a spatula to the surface of the mixture.
Bake in a preheated oven with air, in the lower rack, at 160°C (320°F, Gas:2.8) for 1 hour and 10'. If browns quickly cover with a baking sheet. At the end of the hour we test with a toothpick.
Close the oven, half open the door for 10-15cm (3.9-5.9in) and let the cake in for another 15'. Remove from the oven and let cool completely on a rack.

In a bowl join the powdered sugar with the lemon juice until it becomes a fluid glaze. With this, cover the cake, and decorate with the Jelly.
