In my personal experience, 9 years after euro adoption, the most common foreign eurocoins in Greece, are from : 1)Germany, 2)Italy, 3)France, 4)Spain, 5)Belgium, 6)Cyprus, 7)Austria, 8)Holland, 9)Finland, 10)Ireland, 11)Portugal, 12)Luxemburg, 13)Slovakia, 14)Slovenia, 15)Malta.
The Slovenian eurocoins are too rare, 4 years after euro adoption from Slovenia. I have only one time find a eurocoin (50 ct) from this country. On the other hand, Cypriot eurocoins are quite common here in Greece. Actually, Cyprus is a part of Greece.

It's a real achievement for someone in Greece to find a Slovenian eurocoin in circulation!

Cypriots might find your claim insulting.

Possibly, the most of the greek eurocoins in Slovenia, arrive by other eurozone countries (Italy, Germany, Austria, e.t.c.) and not Greece.

You're right! Most of them have been bought by collectors in UNC condition directly in the bank. Only a few coins were found in circulation. Price for UNC is above 20€!

I think all these coins are very hard to find in circulation, especially the one from San Marino!
