Andorra Gold Coins

Brief Notes on Andorran History
According to the CIA website:-

For 715 years, from 1278 to 1993, Andorrans lived under a unique co-principality, ruled by French and Spanish leaders (from 1607 onward, the French chief of state and the Spanish bishop of Urgel). In 1993, this feudal system was modified with the titular heads of state retained, but the government transformed into a parliamentary democracy. Long isolated and impoverished, mountainous Andorra achieved considerable prosperity since World War II through its tourist industry. Many immigrants (legal and illegal) are attracted to the thriving economy with its lack of income taxes.

Andorran Gold Coins
According to Wikipedia:-

Andorra is not a full member of the European Union, but enjoys a special relationship with it, such as being treated as an EU member for trade in manufactured goods (no tariffs) and as a non-EU member for agricultural products. Andorra lacks a currency of its own and uses that of its two surrounding nations. Prior to 1999 these were the French franc and the Spanish peseta, which have since been replaced by a single currency, the euro. Unlike other small European states that use the Euro, Andorra does not yet mint its own euro coins; in October 2004, negotiations between Andorra and the EU began on an agreement which would allow Andorra to mint its own coins.
Krause's 2006 Standard Catalogue of World Coins states "The Diners have been struck for collectors while French Francs and Spanish pesetas are used in everyday commerce". This looks like another Krause glitch, as France and Spain have both been using euros since January 1st 2002.
What is clear is that Andorran coins, although legal tender, are not used in circulation, and are issued as commemoratives and for collectors.
We sometimes have Andorran gold coins for sale. The table below show specifications for Andorran gold coins, followed by coins for sale from our stock.
The 1997 coin in our photographs has a crowned shield on its obverse, while its reverse design is a kneeling figure of Europa holding a circular shield inscribed "TRACTAT DE ROMA".
