During its millennia-long history, Greece has made major contributions to world civilisation. One such contribution is the use of coins as we know them today. Arguably, numismatic history starts from ancient Greek cities, which were the first to mint coins featuring images and serving as carriers of meaning.
We at the Greek Mint have always been committed to producing coins that are small works of art and, at the same time, drawing on Greece’s history and rich cultural heritage, convey eternal ideas which remain relevant in today’s world.
The flagship of last year’s numismatic programme was the special commemorative coin series
to mark 200 years since the Greek Revolution of 1821,
produced by IETA on behalf of the “Greece 2021” Committee. However, as the Greek Revolution spanned almost an entire decade, we will have the opportunity,
over the next few years, to commemorate several upcoming bicentenaries of the heroic Greek uprising.
Thus, our numismatic programme for 2022 will feature three commemorations in relation to the Greek Revolution:
Two other themes feature prominently in our numismatic programme 2022:
