1. Bi-metallic 1 and 2 Euro from Andorra…..by Frans Dubois, The Netherlands
From the Royal Dutch Mint is the information that Andorra probably will issue the (Bi-metallic) Euro coins from July 2013.
In 1992 there were 12 countries that decided to sign the Treatment of Maastricht which meant that in 2002 the national currency in these countries was the Euro.
Also Monaco, San Marino and Vatican City issued the Euro.
After 2002 there were 5 new members of European Union that issued the Euro so Andorra will be the 6th after 2002
