In today's silver show off, I have a two drachma coin from 1911. It's quite dirty and has a small hole but other than that, it's in a relatively good condition. And what's even better is that I paid for it pretty much spot price:

If it reminds you of something it's the one drachma coin I showcased a couple months ago which looks pretty much the same.

The only exception is that the one drachma coin reads δραχμή for drachma, while the other reads δίδραχμο for two drachma.

Oh yeah, we also have the size difference with the one being 10 g while the other 5 g, both made out of 0. 835 silver.

The front side of the coin features a portrait of King George of Greece while the back side features Thetis on a sea horse carrying the shield of Achilles.

All in all, a nice silver coin :)

I think once countries start banning paper money and physical coins, that is when the value of older coins will really start to rise.

Still, 2 Drachma is better than one, even with a hole.

Does having a hole affect its value much?

Yeah by a lot, essentially it takes collective value to almost a zero so it's mostly the silver that contains that matters!
