    Mel Fisher's Legendary Atocha - 1622 to 2023: Commemorating 401 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!

    Rare and very collectable "Golden Crew" Diver's Division and Investor early style Certificate, with a photo of your coin, instead of the standard scan. This coin is  part of Leah and Thomas (Theodore) Miguel's division, where they were given two chests of coins as payment for their work. They photographed their coins, and the  Certificate is signed and sealed by both of them.

    Both Leah and Thomas are members of the "Atocha Golden Crew," an honor bestowed upon those who toiled for many years with Mel and his family and were still with him when they "hit the mother load" in 1985.     

    The Certificate is "treasure hunter memorabilia."  

    Us 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!
