Andorra 2017: The Pyrenean country logo
« on: September 28, 2017, 09:18:29 AM »
To celebrate the fact that the Andorran government has a logo, the country will later this year be issuing a 2 euro commemorative coin. The coin, of which 85,000 pieces will be minted, will be issued in December.

Quote
The design reproduces on its upper part a triangle, consisting of three undulating strips representing a simplified version of the map of the country, with the inscriptions ‘Andorra’ and ‘EL PAÍS DELS PIRINEUS’ (the Pyrenean country).

These three elements make up the brand owned by the Government of Andorra, which is used to provide a uniform, consistent and coordinated image to all graphic communication and, at the same time, achieve an unmistakable and instant identification.

Shameful that Andorra will likely get away with these non-themes (it is almost impossible to find anything about this logo). Anyway, nice exclusive for WoC.

Poor design indeed. If this was a regular circulation coin, I would say, oh well, they want to put the country's logo on their coins. But this is supposed to be a commemorative piece. Duh.

Not sure when they started using that logo. But the visitandorra.com tourism site has it, for example here:

Latest news is that both the €2 commemorative coins as well as the BU set will be issued on February 7. Is that correct, or will this date be postponed by few months (by mid June), just like last two years? ;)

The information regarding the date of issue (7 Feb) is what I read elsewhere too. But of course that does, by itself, not mean very much. :)

I am almost sure that the coins and the set will not be issued on February 7. Andorran numismatic authority is perhaps the most unreliable one, for last two years, they promise an issue date which is postponed at last minute. It becomes quite difficult for the dealers to manage all their pre-orders and inform the buyers accordingly everytime. ::)
