Crete was home to the ancient Minoan culture. It is believed that the culture was destroyed by a massive earthquake and tidal wave in Thera on the island of Santorini about 1600 BC.
Crete was ruled by the Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, and finally by the Ottomans.
Numerous uprisings against the Ottomans finally was solved in 1897 by the western powers who established a Cretan State. Prince George of Greece was selected to lead the new State. In 1913 it was transferred to Greece.
This is one of the coins issued for the State, a 5 Drachma coin dated 1901.
