Customer Reviews
As son of Philip II, a veteran of war by age 18, king of Macedonia by 20, and conqueror of the civilized world by 32, Alexander the Great carved out an empire that stretched from the Mediterranean to India - the largest ever seen. Under his rule, the Hellenistic Age began. Unlike mass-produced coins of today, this silver coin was struck by hand over 2,300 years ago. So no two are alike and each one is unique. By selecting a silver Tetradrachm depicting Hercules-Alexander`s favorite hero (believed to be modeled after Alexander himself)-you`ll own a tangible link to one of history`s greatest conquerors.
