Alexander The Great Coins
Alexander the Great, King of Macedonia, is an extremely important figure in the history of ancient coinage. Coins issued during and after his reign are collected today for their artistic beauty and historical significance. They were extensively used in everyday commerce 2,300 years ago, so most known survivors today come extremely worn.
When exceptional examples become available they are in high demand and command substantial premiums. Coins that were struck during his reign (called lifetime issues) are the most desirable by collectors and often the rarest in uncirculated condition.

Wow! This razor-sharp gold stater issued by Alexander the Great is one of the nicest we've handled in well over two years. The overall look of the coin is remarkable given its age. Struck over 2,300 years ago, the obverse depicts a helmeted Athena and the reverse shows Nike, the goddess of Victory. Most of these coins are heavily circulated, so to find an example so pristine is a rare feat. Highly recommended and one of the most popular of all ancient gold coins. Learn More$18,225.00
