Comments

In Andorra there were two official monetary systems, French Franc and Spanish Peseta, the latter much more widely used. Although Andorra did not participate in the Spanish Civil War, it suffered the same shortage of divisional currency, for which it was agreed by Decree 112 of December 19, 1936, a first issue of banknotes for a total amount of 50,000 Pesetas.
After the deterioration of this first issue, a second issue was approved in which the design and printed date of the first were maintained but were actually issued in December 1937, changing the color and text on the reverse and adding the 50 Centimos banknote. The total amount of this second issue was 75,000 Pesetas.
