Object Description

An ancient Greek gold stater of Alexander the Great, presented in a gold and silver swivel pendant. The obverse of the coin depicts the helmeted head of the Greek goddess Athena. She wears the crested Corinthian helmet, typical of such gold coins. To the reverse is the winged figure of Nike, standing and looking to the left. The faint outlines of a wreath and a stylus can also be seen; typical attributes. The coin is surrounded by an 18k modern gold frame. This is connected to a swivel pendant, made of silver, via two large domed terminals. These hinges lead to a decorated ribbed silver handle which twists in the centre to hold a suspension loop.

Date: Circa 336 – 300 BC
