This issue commemorates the 150th anniversary of the torching of the Arkadi Monastary.

The monastery played an active role in the Cretan resistance of Ottoman rule during the Cretan revolt of 1866. 943 Greeks, mostly women and children, sought refuge in the monastery. After three days of battle and under orders from the abbot of the monastery, the Cretans blew up barrels of gunpowder, choosing to sacrifice themselves rather than surrender.

The reverse design shows the Arkadi Monastery with the inscription "MONASTERY OF ARKADI" in Greek.
