Greece, 1930 5 Drachmas, Brussels Mint, KM. 72.1 - Borderline Uncirculated

This one-year-type-coin displays a bold Phoenix, perched atop flames on the obverse and the denomination within a wreath on the reverse. Minted both in Brussels and London, the Brussels mint issue is about 23x as scarce (1.5m). And, as the issue saw heavy circulation, all AU and BU specimens command a tidy premium for a half dollar size coin stuck in nickel.
