Greek - Euro Coin Sets

Greece Started Using The Euro on January 1st 2002

On new year's day 2002, Greece, like the other 11 members of the Eurozone, started using Euro notes and Euro coins for cash transactions. Within a few months, the old coins and banknotes in Drachmas have been withdrawn. We have uncirculated sets from each of the twelve countries in stock now for immediate delivery.

The Minister for the National Economy and the Governor of the Bank of Greece chose the designs for their euro coins from a set of proposals presented by a national technical and artistic committee.The designer of the winning motifs was sculptor Georges Stamatopoulos, sponsored by the Bank of Greece. There is a separate design for each denomination


Packaging & Presentation:
We have uncirculated mint sets of coins from all 12 Euro zone countries in stock now for immediate delivery.. Our Greek Euro sets are packaged in an attractive card within a 2-sided plastic case so that the coins can be viewed from both sides or removed if required. We have information about official issue mint or proof sets. All of the countries will issue uncirculated sets, but many will not issue proof sets.
