Why add this beautifully struck Lifetime Issue Silver Drachm of Alexander the Great to your collection?

Though Alexander III "the Great" was ruler of the Macedonian Kingdom for just thirteen years, from 336-323 BC, silver drachms with imagery duplicating Alexander's coinage were minted for about 250 years. Those struck during his reign, referred to as "Lifetime Issue," are more scarce and are typically recognized by the uncrossed position of Zeus' legs on the reverse. This Lifetime Issue silver drachm measures 16-18 mm in diameter, with a weight of approximately 4.2 grams.

Imagery Depicting Gods of Greek Mythology

The obverse features Heracles, his head adorned with the skin of the Nemean Lion. The reverse depicts Zeus seated on a throne, right hand extended for a perched eagle, left hand grasping a scepter. Inscription represents "of Alexander."

Magnificent Choice Mint State Ancient Coin with Fine Style Designation

This Lifetime Issue Silver Drachm of Alexander III is an outstanding example of Macedonian Kingdom coinage struck 336-323 BC. The coin is graded by NGC Ancients, the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation's ancient coin grading division, to be Ch.
