Why purchase this impressively graded Alexander the Great Lifetime Issue Silver Drachm?

Alexander III "the Great" became ruler of the Greek Kingdom of Macedon at the age of twenty. During his thirteen year rule, from 336-323 BC, Alexander had amassed one of the ancient world's largest empires. This Silver Drachm is among those struck during Alexander's lifetime. Coinage with similar imagery continued to be produced by Alexander's successors for nearly 250 years.

Greek Mythological Gods Heracles and Zeus

The skin of the Nemean Lion drapes over the head of the Greek hero Heracles on the obverse. Zeus is depicted on the reverse, seated on a throne accompanied by an eagle and scepter. The position of Zeus' legs, uncrossed and spaced apart, is confirmation that the coin was struck during Alexander's lifetime. The inscription translates as "of Alexander."
