Andorra 5-CENTIMS (KM180) Eurasian Red Squirrel

Non-circulating coin

In 2002 Andorra issued two 5-centims coins: one featuring a Capercaillie, and this one featuring the Eurasian Red Squirrel. The name 'Esquirol' on the coin is Catalan for squirrel. Now that you know the name for squirrel in a language you may never have heard of, why not go ahead and learn how to say 'squirrel' in hundreds of languages?

When this coin was added to the Coin Zoo, I truly thought these were regular circulating coins but I have since learned that they (probably) are not.
