Ilioplius is right.... Particularly on the 2€, it's awful that the name of the country covers the national emblem.

Well... :D I expected better designs. To be honest, I am shocked they covered part of their national coat of arms by the inscription "Andorra". That is very cheap and clumsy — or even awkward — manner of depicting country's name. The same in the case of yellow cents: the inscription takes 1/4 of the coin's area and covers part of the face.

I'm happy they chose different designs! I was afraid to have 8 times the national emblem. In this way the set it's much more interesting.

seems that Andorra still doesnt know that the common side design was updated :D (they are still showing the old map)
