Sexy Otto!

Today's silver coin is one of the most recent and coolest additions to my treasury, a 5 drachmai minted in 1833, just a year after modern Greece was established and officially became independent from the Ottoman empire.

On the front side we have King Otto, or
Otto of Greece, the first king of Greece. Imo a good fella that was never loved by the Greek people much..Oh well..

The coin on this side reads ΟΘΩΝ ΒΑΣΙΛΕΥΣ ΤΗΣ ΕΛΛΑΔΟΣ for OTHON KING OF GREECE

On the other side we have a greek crowned coat of arms with olive branches, 5 ΔΡΑΧΜΑΙ for 5 drachma and the minting date (1833).

A nice big heavy coin that dwarves the regular ones we use today, 22.385 g of 0.9 silver. Niceeee!

As you can see the predecessors made some modifications before it reached my hand. Specifically, a hole (probably for wearing/jewellery purposes) and plated it with gold. It's ok, I still love it <3

Very interesting. I bet this coin has a story to tell.

The numbering is all in tact and I was wondering about the colour.

Thanks for sharing.

Your collection is getting larger, I haven't heard of Turkish coin, it's probably the first time I'm seeing one. Silver is silver

Interesting coin. To bad it’s got the hole drilled in it. But it’s still silver.

The best thing about it is how well the condition of it is.
No extreme tarnishing has happened ..

Another impressive Greek coin.
And a 'Holed' one too, almost suggesting that previous owners didn't have pockets.
So, you gonna string all your 'Holey' collection together and wear your Silver?
And !PIMP out?

You must be killin' it out here!
@kerrislravenhill just slapped you with 1.000 PIMP, @trumpman.
You earned 1.000 PIMP for the strong hand.
You can still slap 1/1 more people today.

I wonder why they did the hole below the neck to hold Otto upside down while wearing around the neck.
I also feel it was chromed to glitter a little.
