Concepcion Shipwreck Spanish 2 Reale Silver Piece of Eight 14K White Gold Pendant | Artifact #6676

Before Mel Fisher's Atocha, there was the Glittering Treasure of the Famed Spanish Galleon Concepcion of Silver Shoals Reef

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

FOR PENDANT SIZE SEE COIN DETAILS BELOW

On September 20, 1641, the Spanish treasure fleet set sail for Seville, Spain, from Havana, Cuba, loaded with tons of silver Pieces of Eight from New World mines. On the 28th, the fleet was hit by a massive hurricane, and the fleet was tossed by the towering waves and scattered.

Badly damaged, Nuestra Señora de La Pura y Limpia Concepcion was abandoned by the fleet and left to fight for her survival alone. With makeshift sails, she desperately sought a safe harbor. But on October 31 she ran aground on a reef in the middle of the Caribbean, 70 miles from land. The reef would become the famed Silver Shoals...

Her legend grew, whispered in dark corners of taverns throughout the Spanish Main and West Indies... and treasure hunters searched for her for 337 years. Then in 1978, teamed with world renowned Spanish scholar, Jack Haskins, Burt Webber, Jr. discovered the coral entombed remains of Concepcion... and a king's ransom in Spanish silver. 

in 1986, Captain Carl fismer and his best friend, Jack Haskins, teamed up with new financial backers and returned to Silver Shoals Reef... this time with more advanced electronics. Their expedition was a success! 

Much of that silver was in the form of crudely minted "cob" coins - the legendary Pieces of 8, each with their own unique shape. Combined with centuries of sea wear and stunning patinas, each is a small work of art - a Limited Edition of one.

This silver coin is from Fismer's 1986 salvors' division.

Note from Robert: Stunning cross and shield. Two reales from this shipwreck are very hard to acquire and are highly sought after. "P" mint mark and "Z" for 2 denomination. Very few Potosi mint coins were recovered from Concepcion compared to Mexico City mint. 

This beautiful 2 Reale was discovered by Captain Carl Fismer and his crew in 1986. One of the last remaining specimens available from Fismer’s expedition, it embodies the hopes and dreams of generations of historians, treasure salvors and dreamers, and will continue to be a valuable piece of world history for generations to come – a lasting reminder of an age when Kings ruled the land, and Pirates ruled the seas.
