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

Requester description: 1982 Front Side: left edge there is the text 'AHMOKPITOE' (the first letter looks like a hollowed-out triangle, maybe A? the last letter looks like an M laying on its side, maybe S or Z?), center there is a side view of a mans face with a beard and curly hair. Back Side: outside edge the text 'EAAHNIKH AHMOKPATIA' (the unknown letters in the first word look like upside-down V's, and the unknown in the second word is the triangle from previously), in the center is a atom with the nucleus looking like a star, below the atom is the text '?PAXME?' (first unknown is the triangle and the second is the sideways M), bottom s the date and denomination '19(10)82'. 10

AΗΜΟΚΡΙΤΟΣ on the face side which means DEMOKRITOS an ancient greek famous person A= delta (greek D) and Σ= sigma (greek S) ΕΛΛΗΝΙΚΗ AΗΜΟΚΡΑΤ ™Î‘ on the other side means greek democracy Λ=lambda (greek L) The A should be replaced by a triangle delta - Omar
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)
