    The Shinning Silver "Piece of Eight" of Pirate Legend... Buried Treasure for the Treasure Hunter in All of Us!

    Please Note: This is an authentic Spanish Reale Piece of Eight Treasure Coin, and you will receive the exact pendant in the photographs and description.

    When we think of the treasure coins of pirate lore, the silver Spanish colonial coins of Central and South America immediately come to mind. Next time you read about the great pirates of long ago, Henry Morgan, Edward Teach (Blackbeard, 1716-1718), John Rackham (Calico Jack), Mary Read, Anne Bonny and many others, these were the coins that drove their raiding and pillaging of land and sea! Even the great, and often maligned, “pirate hunter” Captain William Kidd used these coins to purchase rum and wine for his crew.

    Crudely shaped and hand-hammered, these silver pieces of history are some of the most intriguing and beautiful coins ever minted. And because each coin was minted by hand, they are one of a kind. Unlike a machine minted coin, it is impossible for anyone else to posses a coin exactly like yours!

    Robert's Notes: This coin is virtually uncirculated, with a nice cross and shield. Nice thick piece of 8.

    The joy of this type of Real is the thick and strongly angled, each detail is highlighted in the gleam of silver. And this one was barely circulated before it was secreted away for hundreds of years.  

    Us treasure hunters affectionately call this size of coin a "Key West Dog Tag." Perfect to wear when you sidle (if there is no horse, it's sidle) up to an oyster bar.
