This 18-karat-gold-plated pendant reproduces a drachma coin minted during the peak of Alexander the Great’s reign as ruler of the Greek Empire, 336 to 323 b.c. Hercules is depicted wearing the lion’s skin, which symbolized his victories in battle, a practice that Alexander adopted himself. On the reverse, Zeus is enthroned holding an eagle and a scepter inscribed with the name “Alexander.” 14-karat-gold-plated sterling silver chain.


Adjustable 16–20"L; 1"L pendant. Reproduction “coin” is slightly smaller than a U.S. dime.

      Lovely necklace

      By Mimi

      from Cupertino, CA

      Comments about Alexander the Great Coin Necklace:

      The necklace is pretty, and will be a versatile piece. The coin in the back view is more recessed than it appeared to me in the picture, and there are three raised bumps (like tiny clips) on the back mount. The width of the pendant is almost 3/4". The front is true to the picture.

              I bought three of these necklaces to give to my two nieces and sister - since their last name is Alexander. I thought it was kind of neat to give this to them. Now all three of them have the same name necklace. They said they loved them.

                  Comments about Alexander the Great Coin Necklace:

                  The pendant was beautifully made. The silvery coin set into the unique gold setting makes the relatively small pendant really stand out when worn. It's great that both sides of the coin can be seen equally well. My only peeve is the chain - it is extremely light in weight, and I fear is not very strong. It also looks cheap compared to the pendant.

                  Comments about Alexander the Great Coin Necklace:

                  This necklace is absolutely beautiful. The artist that designed the pendent chose to trim the coin in gold which accented the coin perfectly. It will be a collector piece in my jewelry collection. The pendent can be worn with casual clothing or dress up affairs. Thank you National Geographic for carrying this beautiful work of art, it is a treasure!

                  The quality of this pendant is excellent! I bought it because I liked the beautiful design of the jewelry and was intrigued about the coin, but now it has become my "signature piece"! I wear it often and each time get compliments! I love that I can tell the story of the coin to people & they always ask where I got it. Thanks NG for carrying such unique items!
