The original tetradrachm of Alexander the Great succeeded that of Athens as the standard coin of the eastern Mediterranean. It was struck at mints from Alexander's base in Macedonia as far east as Babylon. Although it originated during his lifetime, the coin's influence was so great that it was widely produced for nearly two centuries after Alexander's death.

I make my own molds and do not do casting so each piece is individually made and signed in the back.
The ring is handmade the old fashion way.
It is wire wrapped as it was in the antiquity with bronze wire coated and a thin anti-tarnish layer.
Rings size up to 7 use a thin wire.
Rings size 8 and above use a thicker wire.
