Greek 10 lepta coins

Lepton (plural lepta) is the name of various fractional units of currency used in the Greek-speaking world from antiquity until today. The word means "small" or "thin", and during classical and Hellenistic times a lepton was always a small value coin, usually the smallest available denomination of another currency.

In modern Greece, lepton (modern form: lepto) is the name of the 1/100 denomination of all the official currencies of the Greek state: The phoenix (1827 – 1832), the drachma (1832 – 2001) and the euro (2002 – current). The following 10 lepta coins have circulated in Greece until the introduction of the Common European Currency on January 1, 2002:
