Golden Age of Piracy RARE DATED 1648 Spanish 2 Reale "Piece of Eight" 14K Gold Pendant | Artifact #6678

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.

FOR PENDANT SIZE SEE COIN DETAILS BELOW

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), 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 is about as cool as it gets:

Sweet Golden Age of Piracy date xx48 (One of the last Potosi mint coins to be struck with the shield design before switching to Pillars and Waves, after the Great Potosi Mint Scandal - detailed in our 10 page full color Certificate of Authenticity)

Stunning cross and shield. Almost uncirculated. "Z" for "2" denomination

While pirates ravaged the seas throughout the 300 years of the Spanish Main and Treasure Fleets, historians often refer to the "Golden Age of Piracy" as from the mid 1600s to the 1730s. This coin has a rare visible date of 1648!
