Featured on Discovery Channel's Cooper's Treasure, one of the most famed treasure fleets of all time, the 1715 Spanish Treasure Fleet yields some of the most stunning examples of early 1700's silver Spanish "cob" shipwreck treasure coins.
Crudely minted cob coins - short forcabo de barra, or "from the end of the bar," each have their own unique shape - and combined with the sea wear and stunning patinas, each is a small work of art!
