WHEN PHILIP CHOSE TO MARRY, AND PERHAPS BEAR A RIVAL TO THE THRONE, THE RIFT BETWEEN FATHER AND SON WIDENED. PHILIP WAS ASSASINATED IN 336, AND ALEXANDER WAS PROCLAIMED KING BY THE VETERAN PROFESSIONAL MACEDONIAN ARMY.
HE TOOK UP HIS FATHER'S QUEST TO INVADE ASIA AND AVENGE THE GREEKS AGAINST PERSIA. ALEXANDER DID MORE THAN JUST FREE THE GREEK CITY STATES OF ASIA MINOR FROM PERSIAN RULE, HE AND HIS SMALL ARMY CONQUERED THE ENTIRE VAST PERSIAN EMPIRE AND BEYOND, TO THE EDGE OF HIS WORLD. A COLLOSSUS OF LEGEND AND HISTORY, ALEXANDER THE GREAT IS REMEMBERED FOR BEING ONE OF THE MOST SUCCESSFUL MILITARY COMMANDERS OF ALL TIME.THE MACEDONIAN GOLD STATER WAS THE PREEMINENT STANDARD GOLD TRADE COIN OF HELLENISTIC TIMES. MANY WERE COINED THROUGHOUT THE CONQUERED CITIES ALEXANDER MARCHED THROUGH. A GREAT NUMBER OF ALEXANDRIAN STATERS WERE MADE FROM CAPTURED ACHAEMENID GOLD IN THE FORM OF IMPERIAL PERSIAN DARIC COINS, KNOWN BEFORE THE CONQUEST FOR THEIR CONSISTENT WEIGHT AND PURITY. UPON THE DEATHBED OF ALEXANDER, HIS GENERALS ASKED TO WHOM HE WOULD LEAVE HIS EMPIRE. HE IS SAID TO HAVE WHISPERED, TO THE STRONGEST. HIS GENERALS HASTILY GRABBED SECTIONS OF HIS EMPIRE FOR THEMSELVES AND THEIR HEIRS AND CONSTANTLY WARRED ON EACH OTHER FOR SUPREMACY. THE COINS THAT BEAR ALEXANDER'S IMAGE INFLUENCED THE COINAGE OF HIS SUCCESSORS, THE. AND THE FUTURE COINAGE OF THREE CONTINENTS. THIS COIN WAS STRUCK SHORTLY AFTER ALEXANDER'S DEMISE.
