Description

The gazeta (plural gazetes, Greek: γαζέτα, plural γαζέτες) was a currency issued in the Septinsular Republic (Ionian Islands) in 1801 during the Russia and Ottoman Empire protectorate. It replaced the Venetian lira at a rate of 1 gazeta = 2 soldi, and continued to be used through the existence of the Septinsular Republic. After the British took possession of the islands, coins were countermarked in Turkish kuruş for use on the islands before the obol was introduced in 1819 for the United States of the Ionian Islands.
