Greece 20 Drachmai (Selene) 1973
Look how the 20 drachmai in our picture has picked up spiffy blue toning. I'd pay extra for that look. Some collectors want nicely toned coins for their collections, and they are harder to find than 'white' coins.
These coins are made of copper-nickel. Approximate catalog values:
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $1
well preserved: $3
fully uncirculated: $10
Use our Important Terminology page to convert these inflated catalog values to actual buy and sell values. The coin in the picture is not fully uncirculated, but it is close. Catalog value is about $5. This corresponds to a retail value of about $3.50. I'd add $1 to get the toning.

Requester description: The obverse has a bird on it. in front of which is a soldier standing at attention. The soldier has a rifle with a bayonet sticking up past one shoulder. Their is a large 20 below the bird and soldier. The reverse has a woman in a toga sitting side saddle on a galloping horse. Her right arm is raised. The horse is galloping above a wave pattern near the rim of the coin. Below the horse is a fish, a marlin (or something like that, I don't know fish well.) The words are in greek. They are clear, but it isn't a language I speak. the obverse has the date 1967 and the reverse has the date 1973.
