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. Worth a week’s salary, a bronze coin like
this would have rewarded the bravery and
fortitude of the soldiers serving one of history’s
most celebrated generals, Alexander the Great.
Son of 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 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 legends surrounding this great figure
become 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 presented in a mounting of 18
Karat yellow gold, this coin becomes the
stunning centerpiece of a ring appreciated as
much for its age and history as for its striking
beauty and superior craftsmanship.
