Andorran coins found in circulation OUTSIDE Andorra

With one year delay, the Andorran coins started to circulate on 15th of January 2015
(at least the 10, 20 and 50 cents coins, and 1 and 2 euro should follow if I understand)
http://www.govern.ad/finances/item/5849 ... a-la-tarda

On ebay, the mint sets are already selling for 100 €, and the 2€ commemorative coin for 70€

So when and where will they show up in circulation?

Some months ago I got some bags of Image 5, 10 and 20 cents from the Bank of Spain in Seville. I kept some of them for my collection and gradually spent the rest in southern Spain and southern France. If coins had a code we would know if this is a hit :P

I can't believe it! I just got Image 10c as change in the fish market in Ceuta. I spent some of them there in October or November, but what's the chance? "Boomerang hit", maybe? :roll:

It looks like one of them found its way to suburban Athens..

(Apologies for the angle - there's no way in blue hell I can turn the photo the right way up, I don't know what's wrong with it, sorry guys..)

One of my friend's sister told him that she also recently found a 2€ 2015 in her town in North France....
Perhaps North France becomes a Hot-Spot for Andorra coins .... Who knows ?
