Greece 100 Drachmes - FIBA Basketball World Championships 1998
In 1998, the FIBA World Championships of basketball took place in Athens, Greece. One of the ways Greece celebrated the event was by creating a commemorative coin with a denomination of 100 drachmes.
It is made of aluminum-bronze and weighs ten grams. The diameter is 29.5 mm. The obverse shows the trophy cup inside a basketball with the denomination below. On the reverse are four players in action under the basket. This is a cool coin but not valuable by any means. Here are the approximate catalog values for this coin:
Worn: less than $1 (U.S. dollars)
Average circulated: less than $1
Well preserved: $1
Fully uncirculated: $5
Please note that all values on this page are catalog values. Be sure you understand how catalog values work. They are inflated values that are normally higher than actual buy and sell values. Refer to our Terminology page for a complete description of catalog values.
