1. They won't.

2. Even if they will be, absolutely nothing. Maybe banks will start collecting them (as well as Greek notes), and giving them up to ECB, other than that, no effect for regular citizens holding them.

If Greece should left the €-zone, the € won't be legal tender in Greece anymore but in the remaining €-zone, the old greek coins could continue without problems I guess (at least until collectors have withdrawed them all :wink: ).

Theoretically, the greek national bank could even continue producing € notes and coins (for other countries then) as the facility is still a certified producer.
