I was told this is a 328 BC Silver Stater with Goddesses Athena and Nike. The writing says "Belongs to Alexander the Great". I have searched, I looked thru links from the Books, Downloads, and Websites topic pinned to the top of this forum and many googles, but have not seen similar. The coin is 16mm and weighs 3.2g. Thanks!

Unfortunately, it appears to be a modern copy in silver of an ancient coin struck only in gold.

Thanks, after searching I was pretty sure it wasn't what I was told, but I wanted an experienced opinion. I'll have to speak to the person who gave me this coin and see where he got his info.

I agree a modern cast copy.
