Othon, 1832, Silver drachma
In accordance with the new monetary system, introduced into Modern Greece by the monarchy, a silver drachma was circulated to replace the Phoenix. It was divided into 100 equal parts, called "lepta", as laid down by the Regency Decree of 8th/20th February 1833 "on the organization of the monetary system". At the same time the coinage that had circulated under Capodistrias was withdrawn. The silver drachma consisted of 9 parts pure silver to 1 part copper (thus having a purity of 900°); it contained 4.029 grammes of silver and 0.448 grammes of copper, with a total weight of 4.477 grammes and a diameter of 23.2 mm. Its value was fixed at the equivalent of 0.895 of one gold franc. It was minted in Munich in 1,125,000 copies.
