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.
