ll ancient coin dies (coin molds) were hand-made and each coin was hand-struck.  Thus,  no two coins are exactly alike.

 Like most fierce leaders, Alexander the Great was not always the kindest person in the world.  Nevertheless, he is considered by many expert historians of ancient culture to be the most efficient General of all time, having conquered most of then-known Western civilization.   Ironic, since up until recently many military leaders barred homosexuals from being in the military, unaware that this triumphant General and many of his high command were, according to expert historians of ancient culture, homosexuals as well as highly skilled military men. 

Alexander the Great is still widely considered one of the few most famous and important persons who ever lived. Assuming the throne at the young age of 20 he set out on an historic expedition to conquer most of the known world. During his brief reign of 13 years he succeeded in defeating every empire that stood in his way. With great personal courage and brilliant military strategy he won victory after victory, and by his enlightened policy of generosity, tolerance and assimilation he turned enemy after enemy into an ally. By the time of his untimely death at age 33 he was master of an empire that reached from Greece to India and from Macedon and the Balkans to Egypt. Though his empire was quickly divided among his generals upon his death, he left an immense legacy in the mixing of Greek and Oriental cultures throughout the Hellenistic world, and he brought the Classical Greek World and the age of independent City States to an end.

 This ancient Greek gold coin was minted by Alexander during his reign, 336-323 BC, and other than the extremely rare disaster, is the highest value coin that he issued. Here is a rare opportunity to own a choice antiquity from ancient times and one that is directly associated with this historic personality.

About Scans

We can email scans only if the value is $5,000 or more, but we recommend that you always view the coins in person, using our 14 day return privilege.    Scans, no matter how good, can never fully recreate the actual three-dimensional qualities of a coin.  Also, due to time constraints, it would be impossible to scan each and every coin that comes in and out of inventory each day.  Regarding our own experience with scanned photos on eBay and other auction sites, we have had to return too many over-graded but "well-scanned" coins, and have heard too many similar horror stories from our customers.  The simple fact is that a scan can never capture accurately the three-dimensional qualities of a coins strike, luster and toning.  If this weren't bad enough, many sellers tend to manipulate the luster, toning, and even the sharpness of a coin through their scanning programs.  We both lose if we over grade a coin, and that's the last thing we want. Long before the advent of "photo scans" we bought and sold coins the good old fashioned way: Properly graded with a full 14 day, no-questions-asked return privilege.  Today, this time-tested tradition continues.  Our satisfaction rate has remained over 99% since 1979. We want you to be happy, tell your friends, and make them happy too.  This is how we have built our business of more than 65,000 satisfied customers worldwide over the past 28 years, and we hope to add you to our growing number of repeat customers.
