Greece 5 and 10 Lepta  1912
Greece 5 and 10 Lepta 1912

Owls on coins date back to ancient Athens (see this page (click here) for an example). Thousands of years later we find another owl on Greek coins, these are 5 and 10 lepta from 1912.

Both 5 and 10 lepta coins look the same and both coins carry approximately the same catalog values, as follows. There are almost no fully uncirculated coins left:

worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $3
well preserved: $7
fully uncirculated: $75

If you can find a coin with the word ESSAI on the owl side, you have found a valuable piece. Essais like this catalog for $2500 or more. Hope you have one!

Use our Important Information page to convert these catalog values into actual buy and sell values.
