The tetradrachm replaced the didrachm around 525 BC and remained a prominent monetary unit until roughly 38 BC. One of the most famous versions of the tetradrachm features the goddess Athena and her beloved little owl. Made from silver mined at Laurium, these coins were extremely influential in the development of Athens. They also famously funded both the building of the Parthenon and the Peloponnesian War.
All 5 oz Antique Argentia Alexander the Great Rounds were produced from .9999 pure silver and will arrive in new condition. The rounds were minted by Argentia, a precious metals company based in Canada. Upon delivery, you will find your piece housed in a mylar sleeve sealed with a holographic adhesive.
For the obverse of Antique Argentia Alexander the Great Silver Rounds we find the brand logo and round hallmarks. The logo is featured across all Argentia products and depicts a stylized triangle design along with the company name. Below this, the hallmark inscriptions read 5 oz Fine Silver .9999. The remainder of the obverse field is occupied by a beautiful symmetrical pattern.
For the reverse of 5 oz Argentia Alexander the Great Silver Rounds there is a portrait of Herakles. The son of Zeus and Alcmene, Herakles is considered one of the greatest heroes of Greek mythology. Today, the Roman version of this character, Hercules, is more widely known to Western audiences. In this design, we see Herakles in right-profile relief in a neo-classical style portrait.
