    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: Atocha coins are becoming very difficult to source, and we are excited to be able to offer this stunning rare Grade One fully dated 1620 coin at this price. Assayer "T" Juan Ximenez de Tapia would sometimes use a "Z" for the "2" and a small "o" for the dates.  Truly unique, this piece is!

    We treasure salvors affectionately call this full size Piece of 8 a "Key West Dog Tag." Saddle up to your favorite oyster bar wearing this beauty, and you are bound to turn heads! Heck, you will turn heads any place you wear it!
