The silver tetradrachm of Amphipolis, depicts οn the obverse the head of Apollo and on the reverse, a torch with it's flame to the left, with a branch based on barley and all this within an incuse square with the word AMFIPOLITON or AMFIPOLITEON embossed on the raised frame. It is one of the most rare ancient Greek coins with the unique and attractive embossed head of Apollo, dated to 356-355 B.C.

The first coins were made of electrum in Asia Minor, an alloy of gold and silver in the late 7th BC century. In the front side of the coin were shown the respective symbols of the cities, the deities who protected the cities, mythical persons or regional products of the cities, visualizations that made recognizable their origin.

The precious metal, which was mainly silver, set the value of the coin, the small shape made it easy to carry and the symbol of each issuing authority was the guarantee of weight and authenticity. At the end of the 5th century BC, copper coins were produced, in order to be used for the small daily transactions.
