This Gold Distater, or double-stater, trident variety, is one of the most rare and remarkable coins in the Ancient world. In fact, some refer to it as the “High Relief” of the Ancient coin world as it appears three dimensional due to an extraordinary level of craftsmanship and size. Containing over a half-ounce of pure gold, the obverse features Athena the Goddess of War and Nike, the Goddess of Victory on the reverse. This is the most impressive, notable and desirable coin issued during the reign of Alexander the Great and is highly prized today.
