5 oz 999 Fine Silver Coin – Republique du Tchad 2023 – 25000 Francs CFA
The second piece from the triad of Pagans comes the fourth in the series of The Nine Worthies — Alexander the Great is one of the most famous kings of Greece. He and his horse Bucephalus were legends even when they were still alive and he was one of the most successful young kings ever to take the throne of any country. He was undefeated in battle and famously tutored by Aristotle. Alexander was legendary in his own time for solving the Gordian Knot and his conquest of the Persian Empire. Greece was temporarily at peace under his rule and he was also famously preserved by the Egyptians and laid to rest in Alexandria which was named after him. Few leaders of any country have risen to such heights during their lifetime. The shape of this piece of art and the ornate detailing shows everything that you need to know about Alexander and his rise to power as a young man. Alexander’s shield is on the obverse side and the convex/concave nature of the design brings both sides of the artwork to life.
Sized at 60mm diameter, this 5 oz 999 Pure Silver coin is struck concaved in ultra-high relief, complemented with enamel coloring and antiqued silver finishing that accentuates the lifelikeness of Alexander the Great and his army. This is a limited edition of 199 pieces only. Each piece is packaged and delivered with a Certificate verifying its edition number and authenticity.
