Just came back from our summer holiday, our fist part were in France and the 2nd part were in Spain.. We had to cover 1 night somewhere and we decided to stay over in Andorra..
For a quick 'snack' we took a Doner Kebab, as change we received a 5 Cent Eurocoin from Andorra. I asked the employee if he had maybe more Andorra coins, he took my question very seriously.. and he went through all the coins in the cash register..  ;D

The score / new additions to my collection:
2 Cent 2017
5 Cent 2018 & 2019
10 Cent 2018, 2019, 2020 & 2021
20 Cents 2018, 2019 & 2021
2 Euro 2015, 2020 & 2021

I do collect Euro coins from the beginning, but i don't buy them.. All my Euro coins are from the circulation and for face value. (only this week i bought also a complete set in Andorra.. >:D )
It seems i'm very lucky with my colleague, i have a office job at a very large warehouse serving whole Europe and further.. My colleague (warehouse) ask almost every truck driver if he can check his change..  ;)
For me a perfect source.. I think at least 80% is in original colour and as new.. I attached 2 screenshots showing a small part of my collection..


This year we went to Corfu (Greece) and spend 2 nights in San Marino..
I managed to change a nice amount of San Marino coins for face value..  ;)

The score / new additions to my collection:
20 Cent 2017 & 2018
50 Cent 2020 & 2021
1 Euro 2021 & 2022
2 Euro 2021

I still need to check all other coins i received as change..
But i think the 2 Euro 2014 (Ionian Islands) from Greece is the best find..
