Bare head of Prince George of Greece and Denmark right, by Alfred Borrel. Around, ΠPIΓKHΨ ΓEΩPΓIOΣ THΣ EΛΛAΔOΣ YΠATOΣ APMOΣTHΣ EN KPHTH' (Πρίγκηψ Γεώργιος της Ελλάδος Ύπατος Αρμοστής εν Κρητή, or Prince George of Greece, High Commissioner of Crete) and the date, 1901.
The effigy and legend of Prince George appeared on Cretan coinage even though he was technically just a representative of the Great Powers on the island and not a monarch.
Below the truncation of the Prince's neck in tiny letters Α. Β. (the designer's initials for Alfred Borrel in Greek transliteration).
