This silver proof coin is Greece's contribution to the pan-European eurostar program, and features the Age of Iron and Glass.

The Age of Iron and Glass in Greece coincides with the first decades of nation building after Greece’s independence in 1830. An iconic literary figure of the time was Greece’s national poet, Dionysios Solomos (1798-1857), whose work immortalized the Greek nation’s struggle for liberty.

The late 19th century was marked by the first major engineering projects in Greece, including, most prominently, the opening of the Corinth Canal, inaugurated in 1893, and the construction of the iron ridge spanning it and connecting the Peloponnese with the Greek mainland, both remarkable feats of engineering in their day.

Another landmark event was the revival of the Olympic Games and the staging of the first modern Olympics in Athens in 1896, symbolized by the Bréal cup awarded to Greece's own Spyridon Louis, winner of the marathon race.
