Andorra is *not* in the Eurozone. They are not even a member of the EU, so
how could they be in the Eurozone? Formally also Monaco, Vatican City and
San Marino are not in the Eurozone, but they are allowed to issue Euro
coins by a special agreement.

Gibraltar has its own coins now, as have the Falklands. The Gibraltar
coins are issued by the Government of Gibraltar. But as Gibraltar is
a colony of the UK, I do not know whether it will come into Eurozone.
I am not even sure whether it fully falls under the EU (tax rules are
quite different and contrary to EU requirements). Guernsey, Jersey and
the Isle of Man have their own coins (and notes) and are *not* member
of the EU, so they will not come in the Eurozone. But the Isle of Man
has a customs agreement with the EU. When Jersey, Guernsey and the
Isle of Man want to issue Eurocoins (after the UK steps in), they need
a special agreement like the three current ministates that issue them.

But those are overseas departments and fall directly under Parisian rule.
