MODERN GREEK COINS


modern greek coin spoons
These two spoons appear to be modern  Greek coins. The whole spoon is gold washed and the marking on the back
is 800 which is supposedly the purity standard of the underlying silver metal.




The lettering identifies the image as that of Poseidon
who is often depicted as an older male with a beard and  curly hair
Poseidon is typically called the 'God of the Sea', but he was also one of the twelve Olympian Gods and also responsible for earthquakes.
