Andorra 2016: 150th Anniversary of the reform
« on: November 05, 2016, 02:54:30 PM »
Andorra is going to issue a special 2 euro coin to commemorate the reform of 1866. The coin will be issued mid 2017. The coins will be minted at the Spanish mint. 85.000 pieces will be minted.

If the coin is minted by the Spanish mint as eurocoin wrote, I'd say Madrid. ;) By the way, I briefly looked the background of that reform up. The Catalan Wikipedia has some brief info, and then ...

The Council of the Land, the forerunner of the present day General Council, is established under the New Reforms Decree which begins the modernization of the country through democratization of the electoral process. http://www.schudak.de/timelines/andorra1866-1957.html

In 1866 a rich landowner Gilien de Plandolit-y-d’Areno initiated the movement “New Reform”, and on April, 14 1866 bishop Josep Caishal-y-Estradez (1853-1879) approved the clauses of the Constitution. On May, 31 1866 the first Constitution of Andorra was adopted http://all-andorra.com/history/

The issue of both the €2 commemorative coins of 2016 (and possibly the BU set too) has been further delayed because of some production error in the packaging of the coins as per a dealer friend of mine. All the coins have to be packed again due to this error, leading to delay.

Both the €2 commemorative coins of 2016 as well as the BU set were indeed issued on June 1st. I'm yet to find a good quality actual scan of the coins, but from what I have seen, I can tell you that there isn't much difference in packaging etc. from previous years. ;)
