Likewise with coins stamped in other eurozone states, the microstate coins are legitimate over the eurozone; in any case, they don't pick up portrayal on the euro's representing bodies, the European Central Bank (ECB) and the Eurogroup. In 2003 Andorra asked for that the EU close a financial concurrence with it which would give it the privilege to mint its own coins.
