This helmet is a centerpiece in a numerous of emblems of importance including the United states military academy crest. The proportions of the coin reflects those of superb tetradrachm specimens found in the remarkable collection in the National Musuem of Greece, the scale of the coin has been reduced for the purpose of becoming a comfortably wearable ring.
