Greece Complete Year Set - EMU 2009

Obverse of Greece Complete Year Set - EMU 2009

Please ignore the date on the coins

Details The Year Set consists of: 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50 cent coins and 1, 2 euros commemorating the 10th anniversary of the EMU and the birth of the euro (unc).

Greek euro coins feature a unique design for every one of the eight coins and they were all designed by Georgios Stamatopoulos. The minor coins depict Greek ships (Athenian triere - Corvette - Modern tanker ship), the middle coins portray famous Greeks (Rigas-Fereos Velestinlis - Ioannis Kapodistrias - Eleytherios Venizelos) and the two large denominations show images of Greek history and mythology (Owl - Europa abducted by Zeus)

The 2 euro coin shows a stick figure which merges into the euro symbol. It seeks to convey the idea of the single currency and, by extension, Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) being the latest step in Europe’s long history of trade and economic integration.
