Thanks. Then we should not expect better quality than last year. Has anything changed in the mint which should make us expect a change?

@ Pabitra Saha Greece has its own mint. Here is some info about the National Mint

The games are from June 15 to July 4, 2011 and hopefully, the coin will be released either on opening or closing day.
Which mint makes coins for Greece?
