On September 28, 1641, the Spanish treasure fleet set sail for Seville, Spain, from Havana, Cuba loaded with silver from new world mines.  Minted into the rough-shaped, famous, Spanish Reale (“Piece of Eight”), the treasure was destined to swell the coffers of the merchants who owned most of the treasure, and the powerful Spanish Empire.
