The Greek coin collection includes coins from the very beginning of the rebirth of the Greek state in 1828 up to present times.
Although (as in all my collection) I make an effort to own the very best I can afford, this is not always possible. Normally I am a type collector but with Greek coins my collection is as diversified as needed but never duplicated (except in rare cases).
As in all sections the last coins in will display first.
Athens 1896 Olympic Games. The first Olympic Games of the modern times. Winner's Copper Medal (2nd place). Gadoury-1.

Details: KM-21. Otto of Greece. I am always very fond of this coin. The very first gold coin of modern Greece. This is the full stems variety.

DETAILS: KM-156. Bank of Greece issues. Struck to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Italian invasion of Greece (or rather the attmpt to invade). Superb FDC in the box of issue with COA. Incidentally the scattered dark "marks" in field reverse are part of the design (mountains in the background). Affectionally known locally as OXI (No) as this was the response of the Prime Minister Metaxas to the Italian Ambassador's ultimatum for surrender.
