Ancient Greek Lion Hemidrachm 400 BC In 20K Gold with Hammered Finish Men's Ring

One of the earliest coins from a Greek city-state, the diminutive silver Cherronesos Hemidrachm stands as a remarkable artifact from Ancient Greece’s Archaic Period. This coin showcases a dynamic depiction of a running lion glancing backward on one side and a distinctive quadripartite incuse square—a pattern of four squares—on the reverse, epitomizing the artistry of early numismatics.

The coin's thick, rounded form and deep strikes enhance the majestic lion's details, bringing the design to life. It depicts the European Lion, a species that was nearing extinction at the time. Celebrated for its formidable presence and majestic mane, the lion symbolizes strength and royal authority, earning its title as the "King of Beasts."
