Quote from: Harald on September 01, 2011, 08:55:25 PMThe historical Macedonia included also Albania, so Alexander was Albanian...The currency unit is named after him as well.cheers--Harald

The unfamiliar language and unusual denominations probably mean that they are not widely known to, or collected by, your average numismatist.
