Some basic facts relating to Cyprus.



Normal Currency Coins.


As with many other countries in the Euro zone , Cyprus has three motifs for its coins- one for the "copper coloured coins"(1 cent, 2 cent and 5 cent), one for the "gold coloured coins" (10 cent,20 cent and 50 cent) and finally one for the one Euro and two Euro coins.


The first motif (1,2 and5 cent coins)is the Cyprus Mollon - a wild Cypriot Goat.

The second motif (10,20 and 50 cent coins) is the antique Ship of Kyrenia.

The third motif (1 and 2 Euro coins) is the idol of Pomos.

The Cypriot coins are the only ones where the name of the country appears on the face of the coin in two different languages. They are Cypros (in the Greek alphabet) and Kibris which is the Turkish for Cyprus.
