Alexander the Great

Alexander the Great is considered one of history’s most successful military commanders! By the time he was thirty he controlled the largest empire the ancient world had ever seen. His reign lasted from 336 BC to 323 BC and even though he was still very young when he died he managed to connect and influence a vast area as never before.

Gold coins struck by Alexander are called gold staters and silver coins are called silver tetradrachms. These are some of the most well-known coins of the ancient world. He also issued a small amount of the impressive distaters, or double staters, that were thought to be used as payment to his most trusted soldiers.
