A tribute to achievement and a reminder of the astonishing deeds of Alexander the Great, this beautiful pendant features a silver drachm that celebrates the esteem in which the illustrious leader was held during his lifetime and beyond. The silver coin was struck in extremely high relief, providing exceptional detail on both sides of the coin. The reversible pendant includes a depiction of Hercules on the obverse and Zeus atop a throne on the reverse. Alexander the Great of Macedon is still known today as the ultimate conqueror. In thirty-three short years, he came to rule a vast empire stretching from Greece to India. The design of this drachm - the head of Herakles (or Hercules) seen wearing a lion's skin headdress on the obverse and Zeus atop a throne clutching a scepter in one hand and an eagle in the other on the reverse - could be found all over Alexander's vast empire. The symbols perfectly represented Alexander: Herakles, the hero, and Zeus, a god.
