Named after the highest coin grade, this website is the result of the love and hard work of just one person... myself! Endless hours of coding, recoding, designing, adding content and revising content have been put into this site since 1998, when it's first incarnation appeared on-line drawing only a miniscule web traffic. A lot of things have changed during the past few years, making Fleur-de-Coin a rather interesting and informative website that attracts over 12,000 visitors each month. The site has grown but although it looks like the result of the combined work of a professional web developer and an avid coin collector, the fact remains that it is only a personal contribution to the coin collector community worldwide.
If you are wondering where to begin. If you have found coin collecting too bewildering and don't know where to start. If you are just too busy to track down the information you need to get started, here is a free place with heap of information which is aimed right at people like you. Fleur-de-Coin.com is geared mainly towards collectors searching for information about the Greek modern coins and the european currency. Although this is the main focus of the site, I have tried my best to include interesting content about coin collecting in general, ranging from little-known facts to complete series of articles about coin minting and more. Each coin included in this site (Greek drachmas, lepta, euros and cents) is well presented with high-resolution photos, specifications and a brief description of the theme it portrays.
