Greece will soon issue two commemorative coins to mark 2500 years since the historic battle of Thermopylae, fought in 480 BC.
The other one is a silver commemorative coin which can be bought by collectors. Not in general circulation, its nominal value will be €10. The two-euro coin will depict an ancient Greek helmet on the national side.
On the arch, one can see the words “Thermopylae – 480 BC,” the year of cutting and the name “Leonidas.” On the back of the coin, one can see a depiction of the ancient Greek warriors facing the invading Persians.
In the center are the words “2,500 years since the Battle of Thermopylae,” the coat of arms of Greece and the words “Hellenic Republic.”
The €2, special euro coins which are minted and issued by member states belonging to the Eurozone since 2004, can freely circulate all across the Eurozone.
