World and Ancient Coins

ASI has created the World and Ancients Program to showcase foreign minted numismatic coins that we believe demonstrate real collectible value to our clients. Because these coins were not minted in the U.S., we do not consider them to be a part of our Spotlight Program, however, we wanted to find a way to highlight ancient and foreign-minted coins that we believed would also be of interest to our clients.

November Ancient Coin

Patrick RicheyHold 2,300 Years of Silver History in Your Hand

By Patrick Richey

When we talk about ancient history, a few iconic names with important coinage come to mind; Cleopatra, Marc Antony, Julius Caesar, Darius, but none are as recognizable as that of the Macedonian military master Alexander III “The Great”.

Alexander the GreatThe son of Philip II, Alexander (356–323 BC) was a student of Aristotle until the age of 16 and inherited a powerful army at the age of 20 upon his father’s assassination. Throughout his 20’s he spent the majority of his time away from his Kingdom, expanding it.

His legacy is that of an undefeated leader and military genius, despite multiple encounters in which he found himself outnumbered. His mother encouraged him from birth that his mission was to defeat the Persian Empire, and much of his early military success was in defeating King Darius III. By the age of 30 he conquered much of the World that was known to him, and as quick as he dominated that world, he died at the age of 32.

Among the most popular coins struck during Alexander’s reign, silver tetradrachms were minted in great numbers, likely to pay for his vast military conquests. While low-grade examples can be found with relative ease, AU and Mint State pieces are always in high demand.
