Taking the throne in 336 BC at the age of only 20, following the assassination of his father, Philip II, Alexander inherited a strong kingdom and an experienced army. A brilliant military commander, Alexander ultimately established an empire stretching from Gibraltar to India, before his untimely death at the age of 32. Although his empire would be torn apart by civil wars following his demise, the cultural diffusion and spread of Hellenic traditions engendered by Alexander's conquests would be his greatest legacy.

Bearing a portrait of Herakles on the reverse, with Zeus depicted upon the obverse, this surprisingly affordable silver coin provides a unique link to the people of the Ancient world - and with the greatest of them all - Alexander the Great. Measuring approximately 18mm to 22mm in diameter, this genuine 2,000+ year old coin is graded Fine to Very Fine.
