850,00 
Greek collectible gold proof coin with a face value of 100 euros, for the Gods of Olympus - DIAS Zeus, maximum number of 1,000 pieces, Bank of Greece mint, issue in 2014. Zeus, “father of gods and men” according to Homer, was the supreme god of the Greek pantheon. According to prevailing tradition, he was born in a cave on Mount Ida in Crete, where his mother Rhea had sought refuge to save him from his father, Cronos. Zeus had to battle the older deities (the Titans and Giants) in order to prevail. The ancient Greeks imagined him having his abode on Olympus, Greece’s highest mountain, while a number of major sanctuaries to Zeus existed across Greece (Olympia, Nemea, Dodona). Over time, Zeus evolved from a punishing thunderbolt-wielding god into a guarantor of the cosmic order, providence and justice, with such epithets as xenios (patron of hospitality), ikesios (protector of supplicants), themistios (patron of right) and soter (saviour).

738,00 
Greek collectible gold proof coin with a face value of 100 euros, for the Gods of Olympus - HERA, maximum number of 1,000 pieces, Bank of Greece mint, issue in 2015. Hera was the supreme goddess of the Olympian pantheon, the wife of Zeus and the mother of Ares, Hephaestus and other gods. She was worshipped as the protectress of marriage (Hera Τeleia), but also as a virgin (Parthenos) and as the queen of gods (Vasileia). Portrayed in mythology as majestic and beautiful, Hera was notoriously jealous of Zeus and vengeful towards the numerous women he seduced, amongst them Leto, Io and Semele, and their offspring, most notably Hercules. Festivals in honour of Hera were held in many cities in Ancient Greece, especially at Olympia, where the “Heraia” consisted of footraces for maidens. Major centres of the cult of Hera in antiquity were Argos, Samos and Corinth (the sanctuary of Perachora). Today, the lighting of the Olympic Flame takes place during a ceremony before the Temple of Hera (the Heraion) in Olympia.

100 euro Athena 2017 Proof

Greek collectible gold proof coin with a face value of 100 euros, for the Gods of Olympus - Athena, maximum number of 1,200 pieces, Bank of Greece mint, issue in 2017. Athena, favourite daughter of Zeus, was the goddess of wisdom, war and the crafts. She sprang forth from Zeus’s head, fully grown and fully armed, representing his wisdom and will. In ancient Greek art, she is portrayed wearing a helmet, often holding shield and spear. Worshipped throughout the Greek world, Athena was especially associated with Athens, of which she was the patroness. It was to Athena Parthenos (Athena the virgin) that the Parthenon was dedicated, with its chryselephantine (gold and ivory) statue of the goddess, crafted by Phidias, while the colossal Athena Promachos (Athena the front-line fighter), also by Phidias, watched over the city from the rock of the Acropolis. Her numerous epithets include: Pallas, Polias (of the city), Archegetis (leader), Nike (victory). The olive was her sacred tree, and the owl, represented on the Athenian drachma coins, was her symbol.

100 euro The Balkan Wars 2012 Proof

2.700,00 
Greek collectible gold proof coin with a face value of 100 euros, for the Balkan Wars 1912-1913, maximum number of 1,500 pieces, Bank of Greece mint, issue in 2012. The photo is indicative, the coin you will receive is in the original box along with the certificate of authenticity. The Balkan Wars occupy a central place in the history of modern Greece. Their victorious outcome for Greece led to the liberation from Ottoman rule of historic Greek territories, doubling the size of the Greek State. The First Balkan War saw the liberation of Epirus, western and central Macedonia, as well as the islands of the northern and eastern Aegean, while the Second Balkan War enabled Greece to formally secure its possession of Thessaloniki, previously liberated during the First Balkan War, and eastern Macedonia. A main characteristic of the Balkan Wars was the striking speed of operations. The Greek victories, largely reflecting the previous modernisation of the Greek State, as well as the unity and high morale of the Greek people, provided a lasting legacy for generations to come. The obverse of the coin features Admiral Pavlos Kountouriotis and the Greek flag in the background. The reverse of the coin features the battleship “Averof” surmounted by the coat of arms of the Hellenic Republic.

100 euro The centenary of the Liberation of the Thessaloniki 2012 Proof

Greek collectible gold proof coin with a face value of 100 euros, for the centenary of the liberation of Thessaloniki, maximum number of 1,500 pieces, Bank of Greece mint, issue in 2012. The photo is indicative, the coin you will receive is in the original box along with the certificate of authenticity. Since its foundation in Hellenistic times, Thessaloniki has always been an important centre of Hellenism. Thanks to its strategic position, the city assumed an increasingly pivotal role in the Balkans as a multi-ethnic and multicultural crossroads, both during Byzantine times and later under Ottoman rule. Thessaloniki was recaptured by the Greeks during the First Balkan War on 26 October 1912 and was formally ceded to Greece at the Balkan War with the signing of the Treaty 28 July 1913. Liberation would soon usher in a new era of progress and growth, especially after the Asia Minor Disaster of 1922 and the massive influx refugees, who would give new momentum and social life of the city. The obverse of the collector gold coin features a circular gold foil with a rosette at its centre, most probaly the adornment of a gearment (ancient cemetery of Nea Philadelphia, Thessaloniki, c . 480 BC), silhouetted against the Greek flag. The reverse of the coin features the White Tower of Thessaloniki and the coat of arms of the Hellenic Republic, flanked by stylized laurel leaves.

200 euro 100 Years from the Asia Minor Disaster 2022 Proof

850,00 
Greek collectible gold proof coin with a face value of 200 euros, for the 100 years from the Asia Minor Disaster, maximum number of 750 pieces, Bank of Greece mint, issue in 2022. The photo is indicative, the coin you will receive is in the original box along with the certificate of authenticity. The Asia Minor Disaster was the dramatic conclusion of the three-year Asia Minor Campaign, fuelled by the irredentist Great Idea (Megali Idea). A fierce counterattack by the Turks in August 1922 led to the collapse of the front and the withdrawal of the Greek troops, which had landed in Smyrna with the Allies’ authorisation in 1920 and then advanced inland into Anatolia. In September 1922, the Turks burned down Smyrna, forcing thousands of Greeks to abandon their ancestral homes and flee across the Aegean. The toll was tragic: thousands of deaths and casualties, pillaging, and the eradication of the Greek element from Asia Minor. Greece received a huge wave of refugees, especially after the Lausanne Treaty of 1923 and the convention on the exchange of populations. The refugee question would dominate political, social and economic developments in interwar Greece. The refugees gradually assimilated into Greek society, which they enriched with their spirit of enterprise and their culture and traditions, while always keeping alive the memory of their lost homeland.

200 euro 2013 Proof Hippocrates

1.500,00 
Greek collectible gold proof coin with a face value of 200 euros, for the Hippocrates of Cos, maximum number of 1,500 pieces, Bank of Greece mint, issue in 2013. Hippocrates of Cos is regarded as the father of Western medicine for basing the art of healing on rational principles and liberating it from divine causality and superstition. He perceived man as a whole entity, and health as resulting from multiple factors, including environmental and dietary ones. The Hippocratic Corpus, a collection of works left by Hippocrates and his students, deals with practically all branches of medicine and systematically records clinical symptoms and treatments, always in line with the principle “to do good, or [at least] to do no harm”. The Hippocratic Oath remains the guide to medical ethics and practice to this day.
