Macedonian Bronze with shield & helmet

These coins were struck during the most important and powerful period of The Macedonian Kingdom. They were first made under Philip II (359-336 B.C.), then Alexander the Great and his successors until about 240 B.C. They are linked to their military conflicts at the time by the Macedonian shield on the obverse and Macedonian helmet on the reverse. It is often from coins like these that archaeologists can recreate the broken, crumpled artefacts they find into what you see in the museum. These 2,400 year old coins grade in Fine meaning they have circulated at the time but this is reflected in a price of just £35 for something that was used in the markets of Alexander the Great.
