Macedonian Kingdom, Alexander the Great, 336 - 323 B.C., Lifetime Issue
NEW In 334 B.C. the Siege of Miletus by the forces of Alexander the Great of Macedonia liberated the city from Persian rule, soon followed by most of Anatolia. Under Alexander, the city reached its greatest extent, occupying within its walls an area of approximately 90 hectares (220 acres). When Alexander died in 323 B.C., Miletus came under the control of Ptolemy, governor of Caria and his satrap of Lydia Asandrus, who had become autonomous. In 312 B.C. Antigonus I Monophthalmus sent Docimus and Medeius to free the city and grant autonomy, restoring the democratic patrimonial regime.SL97494.

Byzantine Empire, Justin I, 10 July 518 - 1 August 527 A.D.
They look similar, but there is a significant physical difference between angels and Victory. Angels are all male. Victory (Nike) is female. On Byzantine coinage, the male angel replaced the female Victory after the reunion with Rome was concluded on 28 March 519 A.D.SL96959. Gold solidus, DOC I 1b (not in the collection, refs.

Byzantine Empire, Alexius I Comnenus, 4 April 1081 - 15 August 1118 A.D.
NEW Similar types were struck at Constantinople and Thessalonica and are often carelessly misattributed to the wrong mint. Distinguishing the mint is actually quite easy. On coins struck at Constantinople the emperor's chlamys (cloak) has jewels (round pellets) on the bottom edge. On specimens of this type struck at Thessalonica, such as this coin, the jewels ornament the edges on the sides of the chlamys, but not on the bottom.SH97094.

Great Britain, George III, 25 October 1760 - 29 January 1820
NEW George III was the third British monarch of the House of Hanover. Unlike his two predecessors, he was born in Britain, spoke English as his first language, and never visited Hanover. His life and reign were longer than any other British monarch before him. Early in his reign, he defeated France in the Seven Years' War, becoming the dominant power in N. America and India. However, many of Britain's American colonies were soon lost to independence. Britain defeated Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. Late in life, George III suffered from mental illness. His eldest son, George, Prince of Wales, ruled as regent and later succeeded his father as George IV.UK96730.
