    In the world of shipwreck treasure coins, Mel Fisher's Atocha reigns supreme!

    Please Note: This is an authentic Atocha Shipwreck Treasure Coin, and you will receive the exact pendant in the photographs and description.

    Atocha is the most famous Spanish galleon in shipwreck history! Mel Fisher spent 16 years searching for her... and every day he would tell his divers: “Today’s the Day!”  Years of trials and heartbreak were endured, along with attacks by the State and Federal government, who wanted to claim what Fisher found along the way.  At last, one fateful morning in 1985 he hit the “mother load...” millions upon millions in glittering Spanish silver and gold!

    Robert's Notes: Beautiful full cross and details, "Q" assayer's initials in red circle. But what is really cool is COA # SR-79. When Atocha sank, she dropped treasure in two places. The first location was in shallow water, and a second storm a few months later pushed her into deeper water, where the "Mother Load" or "Main Pile" was discovered in 1985. 

    The crew discovered the shallow water site about 10 years before, in what they called "the quick sands" or the "bank of Spain." The state of Florida came in and confiscated the treasure, which began an 8 year legal battle that ended in 1982. Mel persevered and Florida had to return what it had taken. The SR stands for State Returned or some variation of that. It comes with its original Treasure Salvors SR-79 coin insert. True treasure hunter memorabilia.  

    This information will also be included with our extensive documentation package so this treasure's provenance will not be lost to time. 

    Atocha coins are becoming very difficult to source, and we are excited to be able to offer this stunning coin at this price.
