Because of the fact that Greece did not enter the eurozone until 2000 and was, thus, not able to start minting coins as early as the other eleven member states, a number of coins circulated in 2002 had not been minted in Athens but in Finland (1€ and 2€ - mint mark S), France (1c, 2c, 5c, 10c and 50c - mint mark F) and Spain (20c - mint mark E). The coins minted in Athens for the Euro introduction in 2002 as well as all the subsequent Greek euro coins do not carry any mint mark.
