Coin Story

Birds not only delight people of every age, they are also indispensable for the ecological balance. With these three very different birds, which have existed for millions of years, Andorra shows the diversity and importance of these flying animals.

The distinctive Northern Shoveler who owes its name to its large, up to 7 cm, beak. The proud Western Capercaillie is a so-called resident bird. It thus belongs to a bird species that does not go on regular seasonal migrations. The Robin Redbreast is a member of the Old World Flycatcher‘s family. An old legend says that a member of this bird species comforted Jesus while he was dying.

Reverse Design

The reverse depicts a Western Capercaillie. The birds of Andorra are very colourful. Therefore, the minted prism technique, which was used for this coin series, is virtually predestined to show these interesting colourful feathered creatures in their full magnificence.

Obverse Design

Each coin features the Principality of Andorra coat of arms. The name of the issuing nation ‘PRINCIPAT D'ANDORRA’ appears along the top edge and the face value of ‘5 Diner’ is indicated in the exergue.
