More than money, coins are symbols of the state that struck them. Currency represents a specific time and place, whether products of the age we live in today or an artifact of a long forgotten empire. The image of one of history’s most celebrated generals, Alexander the Great, graces the front of this coin. Son to King Phillip II of Macedon, tutored in his youth by Aristotle, Alexander conquered one of the largest kingdoms the world has ever known. Marching from Egypt, through Asia Minor, and into the heart of central Asia, Alexander lead a swift and successful military campaign that defeated the potent Persians and stretched the edges of Hellenic civilization into new lands. While his vast kingdom dissolved after his death, the carefully cultivated legend of Alexander will continue to live on not only in our history books and museums, but also in artifacts like this coin: concrete remnants of ancient empires passed from the hands of civilization to civilization, from generation to generation.The glories of antiquity shine again with renewed brilliance and luster. Alexander is among the most celebrated and enduring figures of history. The legend surrounding this great figure becomes reality when wearing this ring. The past literally comes alive. This ancient coin is not a relic of the past displayed behind glass in a museum; but mounted in this ring, the coin is a stunning centerpiece appreciated for its age as much as its beauty and masterful craftsmanship. - (FJ.7138b)
