Circa 1670 Consolacion Shipwreck Pirate 8 Reale Cob 14K Gold and Silver Necklace | Artifact #3574

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!
