Plot
The plot includes four stories linked by a counterfeit gold sovereign. The coin is made by the honest, religious engraver, Anargyros Loubardopoulos. Anargyros has routinely invested his money in British gold sovereigns, bought from a banker. Upon having stored away 100 sovereigns, a friend of the banker suggests that Anargyros mints counterfeit sovereigns. Anargyros refuses. Then the banker`s friend introduces Anargyros to a charming widow. Anargyros falls in love and his resistance is curbed. He spends all his invested money to buy minting equipment...
In 2006 "The Counterfeit Coin" was voted among the top 10 Greek films of all time, by the Greek Film Critics Association.
