The Government of Andorra issues a commemorative coin for the Finals of the World Cup Andorra 2019
There will be 60,000 of the 2 euro coins minted and they will be available for purchase at specialist coin sellers and retail outlets for the sporting event
It is the only location on the entire World Cup circuit with a special coin to commemorate the occasion
The Finals of the Alpine World Cup Andorra 2019 now have their own coin. It was presented this morning by the Andorran Government’s Finance Minister Jordi Cinca, who was joined by Canillo Mayor and President of the event’s Organising Committee Josep Mandicó and General Director of the Organising Committee Conrad Blanch.
Cinca emphasised that this year’s commemorative coin varies from the usual institutional theme to highlight this international sporting event and raise Andorra’s visibility as a first-level snow destination. Meanwhile, the mayor of Canillo celebrated the Government’s decision to mint this commemorative coin, given that this is a country-wide project that goes well beyond the world of sport. Mandicó added that it is the first time that a skiing World Cup has had its own commemorative coin and that the International Ski Federation (FIS) is very pleased by it.
The coin itself has a face value of 2 euros, a diameter of 25.75 mm and weighs 8.50 grams. A run of 60,000 coins have been minted. The design features snowflakes, a skier descending a slope and the event’s logo. The packaging includes a hologram certification sticker.
The coins will be on sale starting 11 March through specialist coin sellers just like previous commemorative issues, but they will also be available at retail points of the World Cup Finals organisation in the Soldeu-El Tarter sectors of Grandvalira.
