I am planning to walk the Via de la Plata and then continue to Fisterra and then on to Muxia where I understand I can get a Compostela/Certificate from all three locations. Can I use the credential signed-off at Santiago and continue to have it stamped for my journey to Fisterra and Muxia or do they require a different/new credential to be used before they will issue me with their relevant certificates?

You can use the same credential if it has enough room for the stamps. You can always pick up a new one in Santiago if you want.

I think it is the Galician tourist board that has a small space in the pilgrim office building in Santiago where you can get a special credencial, 'Crendencial Do Peregrino' for the walk to Finisterre and Muxia. It is smaller than the regular credential and has a map of the routes. It has a picture of the Finisterre lighthouse on the front and the chapel at Punta da Barca, Muxia on the back. You can also use your regular credential, but the Galician was interesting and useful.

In 2016 the Last Stamp albergue also had these available

I used the same credential for all three. Okay to stamp on the pages not intended for stamps if you run out of room. Beware the Muxia office has very limited hours. So check at Santiago before you go to Muxia.
