Greece 10 Drachmai 1976 to Date

You did a remarkable job, Tucker, describing the Greek lettering. These are modern coins made of copper nickel. All dates are worth much less than $1 US dollar when in circulated condition. A collector might pay a few dollars for a fully uncirculated specimen.

Coin: 15935 , Genre: Orthodox and Slavic

Thanks, Omar. According to Wikipedia Democritus (Dēmókritos, meaning 'chosen of the people'; c. 460 – c. 370 BC) was an influential Ancient Greek pre-Socratic philosopher primarily remembered today for his formulation of an atomic theory of the universe. And there it is, right on the coin, an atom! - CoinQuest (Paul)
