On this coin we see the Greek revolutionist and statesman Eleftherios Venizelos (*1864, †1936). He was elected seven times as Prime Minister of Greece and served from 1910 to 1920 and from 1928 to 1932. He had such profound influence on the internal and external affairs of Greece that he is credited with being "the maker of modern Greece."
