Let's have a closer look 🙈👀

First, we have a 30 Drachmai coin from 1963. As I have told ya in the past, this is by far my favorite Greek silver coin to stack. Featuring 5 kings and the detailed map of Greece, it's just such an epic piece to own. Nobody can resist these sexy old dudes, not even @urun !

Plus, it's quite chunky, 18 of 0.835 silver, or 15 g of silver. That's half an oz right there 🤑

Next we have...

Five, yes five 30 drachmai from 1964, another sexy modern silver piece. These pieces were minted to celebrate the Royal Wedding of Constantine II, King of Greece and Princess Anne-Marie of Denmark.

Not as big as the previous coin, but still they come at a respectable weight of 12 g from 0.835 silver, or 10 g of silver a piece!

And finally we have...

Three 20 dracmai from 1960. Another beautiful modern Greek silver piece, featuring king Paul on one side and Selene (the greek moon goddess) on a horse on the other.

These little beauties weigh 7.5 g each, made of 0.835 silver, so each coin has about 5.85 silver each.

So, all the coins above come to a total of 82.535 g of pure silver. Not bad!

But what about this blue fella 🤔

Well, it doesn't have any silver coins inside! And definitely not any Greek coins! I'll reveal the insides tomorrow, all I'll say today is that I got a really cool coin, nicely packed coin collection for 15 euros. More on it tomorrow 🙈😱

Yes, one can feel it when the item is picked up. The weight gives it away. What an exciting feeling finding the welcome item, in the mailbox. Thanks again, @trumpman.

You Got a great collection. I know a friend of mine who also collects these coins.

These pieces were minted to celebrate the Royal Wedding of Constantine II, King of Greece and Princess Anne-Marie of Denmark.

Woah, For real? Was these coin costly or 15 euro like the other u talking about? With that history and silver seems like they must be costly.

Looking forward to see the new collection.

Nothing new individually but impressive together as a sizable shiny haul, now we're stacking quantity!
Looking forward to the coin album show, even if its not silver.

Drachmai 30 is among the most beautiful Greek coins. I love drawing the map in front of kings which is a rarity in various other currencies.

I always prefer to own Greek coins because they are old, high value and pure

I suppose if it's not to expensive I will get one , I just hate the thought of buying something counterfeit but I'll take a chance with this one either way it's not likely the resale would grow too much anyway

Dude, the suspense!!! I wanna see what is inside the blue book man!!!

Initially I was still wondering, why on earth is the parcel so big when it is just a couple of coins.

Oh! It's awesome to see those old fellas again, Paul seemed to be an anticommunism activist in his rules, he was also related to Husband of Elizabeth II Philip being his first cousin, interesting huh!

This wikimedia chart shows some interesting dynasty links from British and Dutch rulers to Europe's monarchs including Greece and Denmark, and and again to British, confusing huh. lol

If you look at the crest double-headed bird eagle in some case is similar to Russian crest. Interesting.!

It's fascinating to think that humanity's used the coin system for as long s it has but it's also super convenient. That's a nice amount of silver. Awesome collection!
