Winged lion of San Marco (St Mark) holding the Gospel (or in some interpretations a shield) and seven arrows. Around, ΕΠΤΑΝΗΣΟΣ ΠΟΛΙΤΕΙΑ meaning "Septinsular (Seven-Island) State" in Greek.

The Lion of San Marco is the symbol of the city of Venice and formerly of the Republic of Venice, which ruled the Ionian Islands for centuries until they were formed into the short-lived Septinsular Republic in 1801.

Obverse inscription ΕΠΤΑΝΗΣΟΣ ΠΟΛΙΤΕΙΑ
