35,00 

This is a replica of medallion type (6.08cm, 37.94g.) which the Roman Empire awarded at the games and contests held in the cities of Macedonia, in honor of Alexander the Great and his father Philip of Macedon in 230 AD. The original coin is in gold and is property of Bibliothèque nationale de France in Paris – NOTE THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE SUCH COIN IN THE WORLD (unlike Alexander’s tetradrachms which are plentiful). The victory medallions are part of an exceptional series that glorifies Alexander the Great, his father Philip II and his mother Olympias, a series struck under the reign of the last emperor of the Severian dynasty: Severo Alessandro (222-235 AD), namesake of the glorious Macedonian conqueror.

Alexander III the Great, the King of Macedonia and conqueror of the Persian Empire is considered one of the greatest military geniuses of all times. He was inspiration for later conquerors such as Hannibal the Carthaginian, the Romans Pompey and Caesar, and Napoleon. Alexander was born in 356 BC in Pella, the ancient capital of Macedonia. He was son of Philip II, King of Macedonia, and Olympias, the princess of neighboring Epirus. At age 20, having come to the throne of Macedonia after his father’s death, he led the Macedonian army against the Persian king Darius and conquered the entire Persian Empire. Macedonia became to largest empire, stretching from Europe to India and for the next three centuries the Macedonians ruled most of this area, ending with Cleopatra VII in 30 BC, the last Macedonian ruler of Egypt.
