EUROS AND CURRENCY EXCHANGES IN ANDORRA
The euro (€) is the official currency in Andorra. Andorra used Spanish pesetas and French francs as its de facto currencies until 2002, when it adopted the euro, the currency used by its neighbouring countries. Moreover, the Principality signed a monetary agreement with the European Union in 2014, allowing us to issue Andorran euros. You will therefore find euro coins embossed with Andorran motifs: the coat of arms of the Principality on €2 coins, the Casa de la Vall on €1 coins, the Santa Coloma Romanesque church on 50, 20 and 10 cent coins and a Pyrenean chamois and a bearded vulture on 5, 2 and 1 cent coins. More information is available (in Catalan) on the designs of our coins and our monetary history at the official website http://euros.ad/ (in catalán).
Association of Andorran Banks
If you're travelling from a country that doesn't use euros, all banks provide currency exchange services, as well as other banking services. It is uncommon for businesses to accept payment in dollars , pounds or other foreign currencies.
