Modern counterfiet of a coin from Macedon of Alexander the Great

Description: This is a modern cast counterfeit of a tetradrachm from Macedon from the reign of Alexander the Great. The originals were minted ca. 336-323 BCE. The obverse shows Heracles facing right wearing a lion-skin headdress. The reverse shows Zeus seated left, holding an eagle and sceptre with a torch in the left field. Very faint to the right of the seated figure is ALEXANDROU, Alexander. Since Alexander's program of hellenization through hegemony included common coinage, this example is as much a testimony to his military and political power as it is a method of economic exchange. For this reason, and due its high historic value, it is a common target of counterfeiters. The tell-tale sign of forgery in this case is evidence of casting; the original coins were struck from blanks.
