Treasures of the World Artifact Spotlight:
Alexander the Great Coin solid Silver Tetradrachm struck at the Amphipolis mint sometime between 315 BC and 294 BC. The front carries a likeness of Hercules adorned with the head of the Thespian Lion, the killing of which was one of his great feats. It is believed that Alexander was the model for the face of Hercules in these coins. The reverse shows Zeus enthroned with an eagle perched on his outstretched right hand and a scepter in his left. If his legs are crossed it would indicate that the coin was struck posthumously (struck after the death of Alexander). If legs are placed together it would indicate that the coin was struck during the lifetime of Alexander. In the right field an inscription meaning (Money of) Alexander, while on the left field contains the marks or symbols of the mint's Magistrates.
