I beg your pardon - as it is possible, if forbidden to issue 2014 tax policy changes Andorra?

The agreement in question is here. Andorra is formally not part of the EU and it doesn't levy value added tax (sales tax), but price difference are much less than 20%, the French tax rate. For alcohol and cigarettes, even more money is in the shopkeepers margin, rather than in the price, as they attract a special consumption tax in France. Only for petrol you get a good deal. In other words, that agreement is a money machine for Andorra, not even counting the fines for tourists (practically all French) who get caught exporting too much alcohol, tobacco or perfume. Andorran customs check a high percentage of cars crossing the border, causing monstrous traffic jams that evaporate your cheap petrol.

Aren't we yet to see the Andorran 2014 €2 commemorative (out sometime this month)? Three €2 coins in a month, with a mintage of less than 100k each, is ridiculous! >:(

Thanks for the confirmation!

eBay seems to be flooded with the 2 commemoratives as well as the BU set. When these two issues were announced, they were being sold for €100 each. Now available for €30 or so... :D

I'm so glad that they changed the color of the folder...to an even worse combination if compared to 2014 issue! ;D

Any idea what was the issue price? Was it made available only to dealers?

Hmmm, that explains why hundreds of these are being listed on eBay everyday. ::) I really feel sad for all those buyers who paid €100 each for these coins few months back...now available for less than €25! :D

Received both the 2015 dated commemorative coins yesterday. I'm yet to check them properly, but the packaging etc. is not different from 2014 issue. Each coin card is individually numbered, just like 2014 issue. Not many countries follow that practice.
