The world's first coins were Greek coins made in Lydia about 640 BC, although the area of Lydia is now in present day Turkey, so that the relationship between Greece and gold coins dates back over 2,000 years. Unfortunately relationships between Greece and Turkey are not always so harmonious.
Almost all coins of ancient Greece are desirable and collectable, and gold coins quite rare.

Greek Coins
The currency of Greece is the Euro, prior to this it was the Greek Drachma.
