Greek 20 Drachma Coin from 1976

This post will examine a 1976 Greek 20 Drachma coin which can be looked at in the photographs at the end of this entry.  Its condition appears to be that of extra fine.

I rather enjoy the design which has on its front an image of The Parthenon which is an ancient building in Athens, Greece which was built to honor the mythological goddess Athena.  On the bottom of the front is the date and the words: EAAHNIKH AEMOKPATIA which in English means the Greek Democracy.    Also notice the word: APAXMAI which is the name of the currency, in English: Drachma.  The back of this coin has a helmeted Pericles who was a noteworthy politician and general and who was born about 500 years BC.  Pericles contributions to the ancient Athenian Empire were profound, not only from a military standpoint but also from an educational one as he promoted the arts and literature.  This coin is constructed out of a combination of copper and nickel.  Its weight is 11 grams and is diameter measurement: 29 millimeters.

1985 INDONESIA 10000 RUPIAH BANKNOTE

In this post we will discuss an 1985 Indonesia 10000 Rupiah Banknote.  On its front side is an image of heroine (female hero) Raden Ayu Kartini who was an important figure and advocate for women’s rights in Indonesia.  She argued that the culture in Java (at the time) did not allow women to develop intellectually as they were often secluded and forced into arranged marriages at young ages.  She wrote about these and other issues.  After she died a foundation in her name was set up by a Dutch family who built several schools in her name.  Later on President Sukarno established a national holiday in her name.  Also on the front of this banknote is a picture of Candi Prambanan Temple.  The back side of this paper money has an image of a female receiving her diploma. Take a look at the pictures of our 1985 Sepuluh Rebu Rupiah currency banknote below.  Its appears to be in extremely fine condition with minimal wear and no pin holes or stains.
