But tying shipwreck coins to actual pirates is rare – most treasure galleons sank due to hurricanes, poor navigation or lack of upkeep. But the Treasure of Isla de Muerto (The Treasure of Dead Man’s Island) is the exception… for her cache of glittering treasure went to the bottom because of – yes, you guessed it – PIRATES!
Robert's Notes: Amazing! Three visible dates! most of the time, only the one between the Pillars or below the cross is visible. Rare denomination and stunning quality! Deeply struck cross, lions and castles and Pillars and Waves. Sweet "E" assayer's initials, P mint mark and beautiful "PLVS VLTRA" SEE BELOW
It is one of the most stunning of the Consolacion shipwreck coins I have ever had the pleasure of working with. And it is an especially rare denomination. It has a clear cross, lion and castle, crisp date and clear pillars.
While each coin does not have every detail, the most striking feature is the two upright “pillars” which represent the Pillars of Hercules; the waves below, the Atlantic Ocean. Starting in the 10 o’clock position there is a “P” for Potosi, next is a number for the denomination. Next is the assayer’s initial. The two or three numerals above the center wave are the date. Through the center runs the phrase PLV SVL TRA – “Plus Ultra” – More Beyond the Pillars of Hercules. On the reverse is the crusaders cross, with lions and castles in the four quadrants representing the early Spanish kingdoms of Leon and Castile. Coins minted in the 1700s will have three digits, i.e. 737 for 1737.
