Capstone Coins is excited to bring you this Kingdom of Macedon Philip II Silver Tetradrachm NGC XF 4×3.
Father of Alexander the Great. Philip II ascended the throne inheriting a Kingdom that was poor economically, weak militarily, and looked down upon as a country. He would soon turn all this around, giving ATG a flourishing empire to build upon.
The obverse is striking portrait of Zeus in high relief, on the reverse is a large muscular racehorse from one of Philips stables. The large racehorse on the reverse is more desirable and one of the earlier issues.
Beautiful and well preserved by NGC Ancients. Selling history one coin at a time.
