What could Greece do with its currency?

Well, Greece, Greece, anything interesting to report on Greece? Our fellow EU and euro member state is the continuing headline in every newspaper and report on tv these days. Will they get extra money, will their debt be relieved or will we have a Grexit where Greece leaves the Eurozone? More and more it seems the latter will be the scenario: Greece forced to leave the eurozone and having to introduce a new (or old) currency. Nobody knows for sure what will happen (although everybody on tv and in the papers thinks they do).

From a collectors viewpoint this could also be interesting. Will we get a reintroduction of the old drachma? Or will they join the ranks of Montenegro and Kosovo by using the euro without being in the eurozone?Or could they perhaps introduce a whole new currency?

To read more on the choices Greece could face in the coming weeks, read this excellent article in the Daily Telegraph on how to introduce a new currency.
