Greek 10 euros coins

The poorest member of the EU, Greece saw EMU as an essential step towards achieving its strategic and economic ambitions. In spite of the euro's weakness when Greece entered the euro-zone on January 1 2001, opinion polls showed that some 70 per cent of Greeks were in favour of membership.

The following 10 euros coins have circulated in Greece since the introduction of the Common European Currency on January 1, 2002:
