Andorran euro coins description

Principality of Andorra (cat. Principat d'Andorra)
Capital: Andorra la Vella Area: 468 km2
Population: 76.1 thousand people (2013)
Official language: Catalan
Currency before the introduction of the euro: Andorran diner = 100 centimes, French franc = 100 centimes, Spanish peseta = 100 centimos
of the euro: officially from January 1, 2014
Heads of State: President of the French Republic and Bishop of Urgell
Form of government: parliamentary principality

For many years, the money of other states circulated on the territory of the Principality of Andorra: the Spanish peseta and the French franc. After all, this mountainous country is located on the very border between Spain and France and formally, since the Middle Ages, it is controlled by the heads of these states.

 

 

After the transition of Spain and France to the single European currency, Andorra began to de facto use the euro, having no agreements with the European Union. Three other European mini-states: the Vatican, Monaco and San Marino also faced a similar situation, but they, unlike Andorra, have concluded agreements with the EU for the right to issue their own euro coins.

On July 15, 2003, Andorra submitted a request to the European Union to allow the use of the euro in the Principality as an official currency, as well as the issuance of its own euro coins. On May 11, 2004, the Council of the European Union recommended that negotiations be started on allowing Andorra to issue euro coins with its own national side.
However, negotiations have repeatedly stalled due to the inconsistency of tax legislation with European ones, because the Principality is famous as a tax and offshore paradise. Only on June 30, 2011, the monetary agreement between Andorra and the European Union was signed. After the agreement entered into force on April 1, 2012, the euro became the official currency in Andorra.
However, in October 2012, it became known that by January 1, 2013, the issue of new coins would not take place (namely, this date was originally expected by the leadership of the principality) due to delays in the adoption of new legislation required by the monetary agreement.

In March 2013, an open competition was announced for the design of the national side of the Andorran euro coins. Works were accepted from March 20 to April 11 from everyone.
At the same time, the participants of the competition were asked to complete the design for coins from 1 euro cent to 1 euro, and the 2 euro coin was not included in the competition.

The design theme for all denominations was already approved in advance:

The winning projects were announced on May 16, 2013. The Minister of Finance and Public Service of Andorra, Jordi Cinca, announced the winners of the national euro coin competition.

The design of the national side of Andorran euro coins in denominations of 1, 2 and 5 euro cents was proposed by the artist Ruben da Silva. The obverse of these coins is decorated with the image of the graceful Izard chamois, which is found in the Andorran forests.
High in the Pyrenees mountains, there is a chamois izard (lat. Rupicapra pyrenaica), which has become a kind of symbol of Andorra. It is believed that she got her name (translated from the Basque language “izar” means “star”) due to a small white spot on her forehead, the outlines of which resemble a star. Even just one or two centuries ago in the Pyrenees one could see quite large herds of these animals, up to 150 individuals each. However, today chamois can only be found in remote mountainous areas in groups of no more than 20 or 30 individuals.

The design of the obverse of 10, 20 and 50 euro cents was proposed by the design company Moles Disseny. The national side of these coins is adorned by the medieval church of St. Martin in La Cortinada.
The Church of St. Martin is located in the town of La Cortinada in the district of Ordina. To this day, the interior has preserved wall frescoes depicting Martin of Tours surrounded by mythical animals.
The building of the church, made in the Romanesque style, was erected in the 12th century, but its current appearance is acquired after the reconstruction of the XVII century. Despite significant changes, the temple has retained the appearance characteristic of medieval architecture.
Fragments of medieval frescoes created in the 12th century that have survived to this day. by a local craftsman, are considered cultural heritage and are protected by the state as a national treasure.

The national side of the 1 euro is decorated with the image of the Casa de la Val, one of the oldest buildings in Andorra la Vella, the capital of the principality. This design was proposed by the artist Jordi Puy.
The building of the old parliament, Casa de la Val (translated as "House of the Valleys") is located in the Old Quarter, in the heart of the city. It was built by the Buquets family in 1580 and originally played the role of a defensive tower. In 1702, the General Council, the highest legislative body of Andorra (since 1419), bought the Casa de la Val for the parliament, which sat within the walls of the "House of the Valleys" for the next three centuries. During this time, the building was rebuilt and reconstructed several times. The last reconstruction was carried out in 1962. On the ground floor there is the Church of San Ermengol and the Hall of Justice, in which the sessions of the only court in Andorra are held.
Today, the second floor also houses the Postal Museum, which presents a unique philatelic collection.

As agreed in advance, the design of the 2 euro coin is made in the classical style and depicts the national coat of arms - the state symbol of Andorra.
The Andorran coat of arms is considered one of the oldest state emblems and symbolizes the joint rule of Spain and France. It is a shield divided into four equal parts on a figured cartouche. At the bottom of the cartouche is engraved the saying: "Virtus unita fortiori" (translated from Latin "Together we are stronger"). 14. Cartouche (fr. cartouche, from it. cartoccio - bundle) - a sculptural or decorative decoration in the form of a half-opened scroll, on which an emblem, emblem, inscription, etc. is usually placed.

 

 

Each part depicts the coat of arms of one of the princes - co-rulers of Andorra: the Bishop of Urgell, the head of the largest Catalan diocese of the Roman Catholic Church, the county de Foix, Catalonia and the Viscountry of Béarn. On the coat of arms of the Bishop of Urgell, a miter (bishop's headdress) with silver ribbons and edging and a gold-colored episcopal crook are depicted on a red background. The coat of arms of the French county of Foix depicts three red pillars on a gold background. The four red pillars on a golden background are taken from the Catalan coat of arms and serve as a reminder that Andorrans are Catalans. Two red cows with blue horns, hooves and a bell around their necks, located one above the other, are the historical coat of arms of the Viscountcy of Béarn.

In Spain, coins will be minted in denominations of 1, 2, 5 euro cents, as well as 1 euro, and in France - 10, 20, 50 euro cents and 2 euros. It was planned that from January 1, 2014 new coins of Andorra should go into circulation. However, in December 2013 it became known that minting had not even begun. The next announced date for the issue of new coins is the second half of 2014.
