    In the world of shipwreck treasure coins, 1715 Fleet Gold Doubloons reign supreme! 

    Please Note: This is an authentic 1715 Fleet Shipwreck Treasure Coin, and you will receive the exact pendant in the photographs and description.

    One of the most famed treasure fleets of all time, the 1715 Spanish Treasure Fleet yields some of the most stunning examples of early 1700's gold Spanish "cob" shipwreck treasure coins.

    Robert has decided to release one of his "sweetie pies" as he calls them; a stunning and rare Mexico City, 1 escudo gold doubloon recovered just a few days before the 300 year anniversary of the sinking of the 1715 Fleet . The provenance on this coin is extremely rare... see Robert's Note below.

    While our 1535 Cadiz Bay doubloons are stunning and very rare, what is even more desirable is the legendary Mexico City recovered form the 1715 Fleet - every treasure diver's (and arm-chair treasure hunter's) dream coin.

    • Articulating Nautical Shackle Bail with a 6.2mm inside diameter large enough to fit a high quality gold chain

    • Pendant size including bezel: 3/4" Across, 1 1/4" Tall - the diameter is the width and thickness of a U.S. Nickel.

    
Robert's Notes: This coin Grade 1+! You can't get a more perfect shipwreck coin. Add to that that it was recovered within a few days of July 31, 2015... the Tricentennial of the sinking of the Fleet.

    This is in the top 1% of what is available in the world! I set it in a luxury width and weight 18K gold bezel. It has a stunning, deep strike, completely uncirculated. You can even clearly see most of "PHILIPPVS" and "I" denomination.  

    This gold coin is true 1715 Fleet royalty!

    What does Real or Escudo mean?  

    Real means "Royal" in Spanish and denoted SILVER coins - "piece of 8" is a nickname for the Spanish 8 real (reale, or plural, reales), or its smaller denominations as they were often cut down into smaller sizes to make change. Reales were minted in 1/4, 1/2, 1, 2, 4, and 8 real denominations. 

    Escudo means "Shield" in Spanish and denoted GOLD coins -  "doubloon" is the nickname for the 2 escudo, or in Spanish doblon back then. Today, we often refer to all Spanish colonial gold coins as "doubloons" until we need to get specific about the denomination. Escudos at this time were minted in 1, 2, 4 and 8 escudos
