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!

This is a stunning piece! 4 Reales are extremely rare and desirable from the Atocha, and incredibly difficult to acquire. A smaller percentage of coins onboard Atocha were the 4 reales compared to the 8 reales.

Due to their smaller size, they didn't survive the harsh saltwater environment as well as the large 8 reales did. This one has a sweet centered cross, and beautiful shield.  

Most of the treasure on board Atocha was the silver dollar sized 8 reales. Atocha coins are becoming very difficult to source, and we are excited to be able to offer this stunning quality coin. It is difficult for photos to capture how beautiful this coin is in hand. 

NOTES ON THIS ORIGINAL CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY: This coin comes with its original, historic Treasure Salvor's, Inc., raised seal Certificate issued in 1986. Long before Mel Fisher and his dedicated crew "hit the mother load," someone believed in Fisher and the magic and mystery of searching for a lost Spanish galleon. When the Atocha was discovered, Fisher gave this coin and others to that investor as part of their return on investment. It has been safe-guarded in a safe deposit box since it was issued.
