Collectible coin of the principality with princes on a parity basis
Andorra is a favorite place for skiing for my family: I have been there 5 times, and maybe more than that.
Taking into account the fact that the state has a duty-free trade regime and there is no value added tax (VAT), you can bring a lot of delicious and beautiful things from well-known world brands from the country, but the numismatist will not miss the opportunity to bring something special.
I brought “1 Andorra 1 Diner 1990 ' - a collectible silver coin issued by the Principality of Andorra itself.
What is” diner ' and what is the origin of this word?
“Charlemagne denier ' is a silver coin introduced into circulation by the Emperor of the Franks, Charlemagne. Since the territory of modern Andorra since 817 was part of the Carolingian Empire, the coin with this name was well known to the inhabitants of the principality.
The principality itself had a unique status of dual rule: in accordance with the Act of September 8, 1278, the country established the rule of 2 princes-the Catalan bishop of Urgell and the French Count de Foix, who alternately led the principality through their representatives – so to speak, in a remote mode.
