STUNNING 1715 Fleet Shipwreck 8 Reale Piece of Eight 14K Gold Necklace - the Cobb Coin Company Collection | Artifact #3859

Size Guide

The Eight Reale - or "Piece of 8" and a Rare Cobb Coin Company Certificate!

Please Note: This is an authentic 1715 Fleet Shipwreck Treasure Coin, and you will receive the exact pendant in the photographs and description.

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 for cabo de barra, or "from the end of the bar," each has it's own unique shape - and combined with the sea wear and stunning patinas, each is a small work of art!


Your 1715 Fleet Shipwreck Treasure Coin

  • Mint: Mexico City, New Spain
  • Ruler: King Philip V of Spain
  • Coin Metal: Silver
  • Bezel Metal: 14K Gold
  • Articulating Nautical Shackle Bail with a 5.8mm inside diameter large enough to fit a high quality gold chain

  • Reverse: (Back): The shield of King Philip V of Spain

Note from Robert: It is hard to get any more stunning and beautiful than this "Fleet 8"! Perfect, centered cross. Classic 1715 Fleet shape! It looks very similar to the first "Piece of 8" I recovered from the Fleet. But this one was recovered a few years before I began "working the fleet." A true "Key West Dog Tag." Get a mild sunburn on your face, and push up to the bar at Capt. Tony's in Key West with this beauty slung low around your neck and you'll turn heads! Heck, you'll turn heads anywhere you wear it!

Mel Fisher and his family started working the 1715 Fleet before they moved to Key West to begin their 16 year Search for Atocha. What makes this coin so rare is that it is a high-quality "Fleet piece" and that it has a Certificate of Authenticity from Fisher and his early Cobb Coin Company. This is true Treasure Hunter memorabilia - rare and valuable.
