The Principality of Andorra is a southwest European country located between Spain and France. Andorra was jointly ruled by France and Spain for 700 years. In 1993, the first Andorran Constitution was passed, establishing its parliamentary government. 

Andorra is the only European country that uses the euro as its official currency despite not being part of the EU. Prior to the euro, Andorra used the French franc and the Spanish peseta. The diner was also used, with 1 dinar equal to 100 centimes or 1 franc. 

The diner is the original coin of Andorra issued by the Andorran Mint. The Andorran Mint was founded in June 1977. After adopting the euro, Andorra stopped minting its own coins. However, because of negotiations with the EU in 2013, Andorra received the right to mint its own coins again. Andorra issues the following denominations: 1 cent, 2 cents, 5 cents, 10 cents, 20 cents, 50 cents, 1 euro, and 2 euros. The 1-, 2-, and 5-cent coins are made of steel with copper coating and feature the chamois goat. The 10-, 20-, and 50-cent coins are made of Nordic gold and feature the Romanesque Church of Santa Coloma. Meanwhile, the 1- and 2-euro coins are bimetallic. The 1-euro coin has a copper-nickel center and a nickel brass ring and features the Casa de la Val. The 2-euro coin has a nickel-brass center and a copper-nickel ring and features the coat of arms of the Principality of Andorra.
