Each 5 oz Argentia Alexander the Great Round in this JM Bullion online listing is considered brand-new. The rounds were die-struck by Argentia Precious Metals with silver sourced from an LMBA-recognized refinery.

The obverse of 5 oz Alexander the Great Silver Rounds contains the brand logo and the round’s identifying hallmarks. These hallmarks consist of the weight, purity, and metal type. Above these details, the logo is featured. This design consists of a triangular shape along with the company name. The obverse also includes an attractive background arrangement in the Greek meander style.
On the reverse of these Argentia Alexander the Great Silver Rounds, a portrait of Herakles is featured. Herakles, son of Zeus, is one of Greek mythology’s most well-known heroes. This design was crafted with ultra-high relief detail, which allows it to emerge with three-dimensional clarity.
Alexander the Great lived from 356 BC until 323 BC. During this time, he helped popularize the tetradrachm coinage outside of Athens, where it had originated. These coins generally consisted of 17.2 grams of silver and were known for their impressive artistic designs. The imagery on these coins often served political purposes, helping to promote a leader, place, or system of belief. Arguably the most celebrated tetradrachm is known as the Athenian Owl. This design dates back to 510 BC and features both Athena and her beloved Little Owl.
