Macedonian Empire Coins
Macedonia was a small kingdom in northern Greece that was under Persian control in the 4th century BC until Philip II (359–336 BC) overthrew the Persians and took control of the area.Eventually his son, Alexander the Great expanded the empire after Philip's death.
Macedonian coins are some of the most attractive coins available today. They are hand-crafted works of art created by talented artists. Each Greek city took pride in minting its own coins and marked them with significant symbols reflecting their culture and they remain famous and extremely evocative to this day.

Superb silver ancient coin for the price and as large as a modern-day silver dollar. If you're looking for a great gift or an interesting coin to put away for a while, we strongly suggest this large tetradrachm. The front has a portrait of Dionysis, the goddess of wine. Remarkable value for the price and quite large in size, to boot. Learn More
