Consolacion Shipwreck Pirate 8 Reale Piece of Eight Cob circa 1670 Silver Necklace | Artifact #3041

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!

Robert's Notes: When Consolacion hit the reef, part of her settled in deep water, and another part settled in shallower water. This coin was recovered from the shallow water site, where there was more wave action. The cross and Pillars and Waves are quite visible in hand, and the sea-wear highlights the shipwreck provenance of this treasure coin.
