What's the reason for keeping issue date in (possibly) second quarter of 2017? Only dealers get benefited because of this. They have already started pre-sales of both the coins (~25 each), so they make a good profit without making any delivery of the items for ~6+ months!

By the way, a friend tells me that the issue date is actually fixed in December'16 but that looks impossible to me, considering last year's experience. Let's see.

That is what is written in the Official Journal of the European Commission but I have confirmation from the Ministry of Finance of Andorra that it will be mid next year.

Spanish mint (FNMT) as Niels mentioned in first post. The coin won't show mint mark of Spanish mint, though.

Great, so, they had the Vatican, San Marino and Monaco producing coins like crazy that most people can't collect and making some people rich, and now it looks like Andorra's going to be producing what, two a year every year? And what does a small country like Andorra have to celebrate twice a year that's worthy of putting on a coin? Shakespeare?
