Corfu, Greece

The Ionian Bank’s Banknote Museum

History

Housed in the historic building of the first Corfu Branch of the Ionian Bank (est. 1840) and now part of the Alpha Bank’s Archives, its collection includes the complete series of all the banknotes, coins and related material issued and circulated throughout the history of the Greek State, spanning a history of almost 200 years. The collection starts with the bond notes in piastres issued by the Provisional Government of Greece in 1822 and the “phoenix” banknote issued by Ioannis Kapodistrias in 1831, and ends with the last banknotes issued in drachmas, which were withdrawn in 2002 with the introduction of the Euro.
