    Mel Fisher's Legendary Atocha - 1622 to 2022: Commemorating 400 Years of History

    In the world of shipwreck treasure coins, Mel Fisher's Atocha reigns supreme!

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


    Atocha is the most famous Spanish galleon in shipwreck history! Mel Fisher spent 16 years searching for her... and every day he would tell his divers: “Today’s the Day!”  Years of trials and heartbreak were endured, along with attacks by the State and Federal government, who wanted to claim what Fisher found along the way.  At last, one fateful morning in 1985 he hit the “mother load...” millions upon millions in glittering Spanish silver and gold!

    Robert's Notes: Beautiful full cross and shield detail, with sweet visible two digits for the date 1619. Very visible "P" mint mark and denomination. The coin looks stunning in hand. Potosi int only started dating coins in 1617, and most of the time the date fell off the edge of the planchet.

    We treasure hunters call pieces like these "Key West Dog Tags." Sidle (if there's no horse, it's sidle) up to an oyster bar and you will turn heads!

    Special James Sinclair signed and sealed Atocha Certificate of Authenticity. Jim is an esteemed member of the Atocha Golden Crew, those crew members who worked for Fisher for many years with little or no pay, and were still with him when they "hit the Mother Load." Jim was in charge of the Treasure Salvors Conservation Lab, and conserved this coin after Mother Load discovery. His original, hand-signed signature and seal is on this Certificate, which is pretty cool.

    This coin is from an old Atocha Golden Crew Diver's Division
