History of the Artifact

The coin features on the obverse the head of Herakles wearing the skin of the Nemean Lion he killed in one of the famous ‘12 Labors of Hercules” - it is speculated that this rendition of Herakles’ portrait may have been heavily inspired on Alexander’s own features. The reverse features Zeus enthroned holding an eagle and scepter. 

As is famously known, Alexander the Great, aged only twenty years became king of Macedonia in 336 B.C., in a matter of years following his crowning, he demonstrated he was perhaps the greatest general of all time and an invincible empire builder. In the course of just thirteen years before his death at Babylon in 323 B.C, he changed the Mediterranean and Near Eastern world forever by bringing the territory of the Persian Empire under Greek rule.

It was in fact during the invasion of Persia that Alexander was able to loot sufficient silver from the enormously wealthy reserves of the Persian Empire to mint these very coins now available to you for purchase! 

These silver reserves plundered from the Persians were so abundant that these Alexander the Great coins became traded everywhere by merchants and Kings throughout the Hellenistic Period. Their quality was so praised for their fine silver content that they became the de facto ‘US dollar' of the time - the currency everyone wanted to trade with.

I ordered this coin for my grandson, he loves anything Roman history and was thrilled. I didn’t receive the authentic certificate with it, I contacted the seller and asked if he could send one out to him. He responded right away and is sending it right out. I would recommend to everyone. Very good customer service and arrived early.
