Greece 1 Lepton, and 2, 5 and 10 Lepta  1869 to 1882
Greece 1 Lepton, and 2, 5 and 10 Lepta 1869 to 1882

These old copper coins from Greece all have the same appearance, but with different sizes and denominations. George I of Greece shows on the front, and the wreathed denomination on the back.

1 LEPTON: 1869 to 1879
2 LEPTA: 1869 to 1878
5 LEPTA: 1869 to 1882
10 LEPTA: 1869 to 1882

All these coins carry good collector value, and some are extra valuable when in good condition. We describe value by first summarizing all the lower-value coins, then calling out the extra valuable dates. Hope you have an 'extra valuable' one!

LOWER VALUE DATES: 1, 2, 5, and 10 LEPTA (average values)
worn: $5 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $8
well preserved: $30
fully uncirculated: $150

The extra valuable coins appear in the list below. Two values are given, one for coins in average circulated condition and one for coins in well preserved condition. To reach these values, coins must be free of problems, such as scratches, stains, spots, cleanings, nicks, gouges, and the like.

1 lepton 1870: $80 average circulated, $500 well preserved
l lepton 1879: $25, $180
2 lepta 1869: very valuable, no pricing data available
2 lepta 1878: $25, $150
5 lepta 1870: $100, $400
5 lepta 1879: $150, $800
10 lepta 1870: $50, $400
10 lepta 1879: $150, $800

If your coin does not appear in the 'extra valuable' list, then use the 'lower value' entry.

Remember these are all catalog values. Actual values are almost always lower. Refer to our Important Terminology page for a detailed description of catalog values.
