This is SPARTAAAAA!! A new commemorative coin to enter circulation.
Greece will soon issue 2 commemorative coins to mark 2500 years since the historic battle of Thermopylae, fought in 480 BC. The official announcement took place during the ”World Money Fair 2020,” which took place in Berlin from January 31 until February 3.
One of the two commemorative coins, which will soon enter circulation across the Eurozone has the value of just €2, and will depict an ancient Greek helmet on the national side. There will be just 735,000 coins released in to circulation and although only clad, will still be highly collectable.
€2 COMMEMORATIVE CIRCULATION COIN DEDICATED TO: “2,500 YEARS SINCE THE BATTLE OF THERMOPYLAE”
The other one, and the one I'm more interested in, is a silver commemorative coin. This coin is not intended for general circulation, it has a nominal value of €10 and will be limited to a maximum mintage of just 3000 pieces.

I'm still waiting to find out prices and release dates, but the €2 coin would be a very nice surprise if it turned up in your change(euro zone).
