Pirate Era 1560 22K Gold One Escudo - the Legendary Doubloon - 18K Gold Pendant | Artifact #6842

The Legendary Pirate Era 22K Gold 1 Escudo "Doubloon" Coin  Pendant

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

FOR PENDANT SIZE SEE COIN DETAILS BELOW

When we think of the treasure coins of pirate legend and lore, the first thing that comes to mind is the gold “doubloon.” Doubloons, or Escudos (which means shield in Spanish), are the gold coins to satiate desire. From kings and queens, to merchants, adventurers, and yes, pirates and privateers, the gold Escudos, along with their counter parts, silver “Pieces of 8,” fueled the world  economy for some 300 years.

Next time you read about the great pirates of long ago; Henry Morgan, Edward Teach (Blackbeard), John Rackham (Calico Jack), Mary Read, Anne Bonny and many others, these were the coins that drove their raiding and pillaging of land and sea! Even the great, and often maligned, “pirate hunter” Captain William Kidd used these coins to purchase rum and wine for his crew.

Crudely shaped and hand-hammered, these 22K gold (24K is pure gold) pieces of history are some of the most intriguing and beautiful coins ever minted. And because each coin was minted by hand, they are one of a kind. Unlike a machine minted coin, it is impossible for anyone else to posses a coin exactly like yours!

Your Pirate Era Gold Doubloon Pendant

  • Date: Circa 1560
  • Denomination: 1 Escudo "Doubloon"
  • Coin weight: 3.4 grams 
  • Mint: "S" Seville, Spain
  • Rulers: Charles & Joanna KAROLVS & IOANA "la loca"
  • Assayer:  D on its side Melchor Damian
  • Reverse (Back): The Jerusalem Cross
  • Obverse: (Front): The Royal Shield KAROLVS & IOANA around the edge
  • Coin Metal: 22K Gold
  • Bezel Metal: 18K Gold - Luxury-Width bezel
  • Articulating Nautical Shackle Bail with a 6.2mm inside diameter large enough to fit a high quality gold chain
  • Pendant Size including bezel: 1" Across, 1 1/2" Tall - Pendant width of a quarter

    Note from Robert: Beautiful, full cross and shield. Virtually uncirculated. "S" mint mark and "D" assayer visible. Most of the time the mint mark and assayer isn't visible.  This coin ranks in the top 3% quality available in the world. 

    Visible IOANA ET KAROLVS for Joanna and Charles. Almost complete REGES SI HISPANIARVM, Latin for King of Spain and Sicily.Most of the time this falls off the edge of the planchet.

    I like to set these pieces in our luxury weight, 18K gold as the coins and jewelry back then were 22K gold (24K is pure gold), and the 18K gold bezel gives this beautiful piece a stunning warm, regal glow and feel.   

    Shield design elements indicates the King’s realm: Castile and Leon; Jerusalem and Navarre; Aragon and Sicily, Granada.
