Pulling the camara back will enable the coin to be in focus, then crop the coin out using paint or your editing program of choice...

That's most likely the reason the pics are so blurry. There's a minimum distance between camera and object, depending on the camera, below which it can't focus. If you want to participate in this discussion with photos of your coins, you really need to figure out how to take halfway decent photos. There's nothing useful to be said, looking at these pictures. It might very well be a Greek coin you're showing but it might also be a moldy cookie.
