Lucky New Year coin

It’s a tradition: Every year the Association of the Friends of the Athens Concert Hall and Zoumboulakis Galleries produce a lucky New Year coin designed by a great artist which can be worn as a medallion. This year the coin bears the signature of the late Spyros Vassileiou, whose wife and daughters offered the design. It depicts an Annunciation scene from a 1970s watercolor. The money raised by the coins will fund the Camerata’s concerts in 20 Athens municipalities. ATMs in Metro stations.
