A very fine ring featuring an Alexander the Great silver Drachm coin set in a modern 18ct gold frame and a round hoop produced from 5 grammes of gold. The frame is marked with a London hallmark. The coin’s face displays the profile head of Alexander wearing the skin of the Nemean lion, facing right. The reverse of the coin displays the god, Zeus, enthroned on the left, holding an eagle in his right hand and a sceptre in his left; the legend, AΛEΞANΔPOΣ, is on the right; various monograms in the field. This side can be partially seen through the back of the frame.
