Back to Say YES to Greece's heritage, our heritage

Stolen 4th ce BC coins returned to Greece


Switzerland returned over 100 silver coins dating back to the first half of the 4th century B.C. to Greece. The coins were stolen by a Belgian who has permanent residence in Greece and were confiscated at the Zurich Airport in 2011. The bilateral agreement between Greece and Switzerland “on the import, transit and repatriation of cultural goods,”played a large role in the return of the coins.
