Coin Story

Andorra introduces the EURO in 2014 but will still issue silver commemorative coins in Diners; please refer to the European Commission agreement where it is agreed these coins still bear the nominal value in Diners.
The Common Kingfisher (Alcedo atthis) also known as Eurasian Kingfisher, or River Kingfisher, is a small kingfisher with seven subspecies recognized within its wide distribution across Eurasia and North Africa. It is resident in much of its range, but migrates from areas where rivers freeze in winter.
This sparrow-sized bird has the typical short-tailed, large-headed kingfisher profile; it has blue upperparts, orange underparts and a long bill. It feeds mainly on fish, caught by diving, and has special visual adaptions to enable it to see prey under water. The glossy white eggs are laid in a nest at the end of a burrow in a riverbank.

Reverse Design

The reverse depicts a Kingfisher in full color, with a fish in his mouth. In the background, you will find a beautifully engraved scenery, including a bird watcher and a globe. At the top you can read "Europa" and at the bottom "Blauet" "Alcedo Atthis".

Obverse Design

The obverse features the Coat of Arms of Andorra. The issuing country "Principat D'Andorra" and the denomination "5 Diners" are also engraved on this side of the coin.

Packaging

The Birding - European Kingfisher silver coin comes encapsulated in a presentation case with a Certificate of Authenticity.
