Size Guide

Beautiful Cross - 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.

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!

Robert got his treasure diving start on this Spanish Treasure Fleet in the late '80s and early '90s.

Note from Robert: Beautiful cross and shield, with visible Mint Mark and Assayer's initials. Perfect pendant size. Mel Fisher and his family worked the 1715 Fleet before they moved to Key West to being their 16 year Search for Atocha. What makes this coin so rare is that it is a high-quality four real - a rare denomination - 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.
