1679 Consolacion Shipwreck Pirate 8 Reale Cob 14K Gold Necklace | Artifact #3864

Size Guide

Pirates! Perhaps no other class of seafarers is quite so famous – or infamous!

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

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: This is a beautiful coin. 8 reales from this shipwreck, and at this price are difficult to come by these days. But sometimes we can talk one of our treasure hunter friends out of one or two! Clear date and mint "P" marks. It has a nice cross, lion and castle, clear "79" date, "C" assayer's initials and Pillars and Waves. It's a very piratical "Key West Dog Tag"! A true statement piece for a pirate queen or king!
