Council of State Officially Approves 1821 Commemorative Coin’s Circulation

ATHENS — The circulation of a two-euro commemorative coin for the 200th anniversary of the Greek Revolution was formally approved by the Council of State on Thursday.

Specifically, Greece's highest administrative court approved the presidential decree which will lead to the circulation of 1.5 million commemorative coins.

The coins will depict the Greek flag surrounded by laurel leaves, and the banner "1821-2021, 200 years since the Greek Revolution". They were designed by Giorgos Stamatopoulos and will cost the Finance ministry 601,000 euros to produce.
