All coins are cleaned and prepared in order to show details. 14kgf channel wire was used for the bezel and the coin snapped into place and epoxied. All Coins are GUARANTEED to remain secure. Coins are more than 2000 years old and guaranteed authentic. I hand crafted the bail and soldered it to the bezel.

Apollo is the son of Zeus and Leto. He is the god of light and the sun, truth and prophecy; medicine, healing, and plague; music, poetry, and the arts; and much more. The horse on this Greek coin is a commemorative of the races King Philip II won. King Philip II was an Olympic champion three times. In the 106th Olympics, in 356 BCE, he won the race, riding his horse. In the 107th Olympics, in 352 BCE, he won the four-horse chariot race. In the 108th Olympics, in 348 BCE, he was also the winner of the two colt chariot race.
