Greece Kapodistrias Lepton, 5, 10, and 20 Lepta, and 1 Phoenix 1828 to 1831

These are valuable coins. The one in our main picture (upper left) comes from Kuenker in Osnabruck where it sold for 1600 euros (about $1800 US dollars) during a 2013 auction. Values can go even higher.

1 PHOENIX

John Kapodistrias ruled the Greek Republic between 1828 and 1831. He issued several coins using the phoenix and cross design, with a wreath on the reverse. Only the phoenix denomination is silver. The lesser denominations are made of copper.

Although I do not know of specific examples, there are most certainly replicas of these rare and valuable coins. Always deal with people you know and trust when it comes to valuable coins.
