General Information:
Alexander the Great requires no introduction. One of the most influential people of all time, his legacy has helped shape the world we live in today. The coins of Alexander the Great continued to be issued in his honour long after his short but fully-lived life. They depict Alexander as Hercules, complete with lionskin headdress on the obverse. On the reverse, the inscription reads ALEXANDROU, which means "of Alexander". There are many different varieties and common to find variants which are unpublished.

I am stocked with this product The product came in 3 business days which was promised and boy was I impressed with what I got. The coin came in a small little plastic sleeve with a small piece of paper with all of the coins facts and it's origins which was a pleasant surprise. It also came with a peice of A4 paper again stating all of the coins facts, origins and alittle paragraph of who is on the coin and below that was signed by a licensed historian which states it is an authentic peice. In my eyes to own a peice of history even as small as a silver coin is breath taking beyond belief and better yet to get it in 3 days with a good price. I cannot recommend this company enough. Thank you
