Member states exercise on a rotating basis for a period of six months, the chairmanship of the Committee of Ministers, which is the executive body of the organism. The Andorran chairmanship of the Committee of Ministers started on November 9, 2012 and ended on May 16, 2013.

The coat of arms of Andorra is the heraldic device consisting of a shield divided quarterly by the arms of the Bishop of Urgell (top left) and the Count of Foix (top right) – who have historically been the two co-princes of Andorra – in addition to the emblems of Catalonia (bottom left) and the Viscount of Béarn (bottom right).

A geographical map of Western Europe spans the outer ring and inner core on the right side of the coin. The inscription 2 EURO is superimposed over the map of Europe, with the numeral “2” located in an open field representing the eastern Atlantic Ocean.

12 stars are located on the right side of the outer ring, with six stars atop the map of Europe and six stars below it; six vertical stripes cut across the inner core of the coin, visually connecting the upper and lower star segments.

Luc Luycx, a designer at the Royal Belgian Mint, designed the Euro’s common reverse; his initials, LL, are seen on the right side of the design, just under the “O” in “EURO.”



The sequence "2 ★ ★" repeated six times alternately upright and inverted.
