Pirate Era 1633 22K Gold Two Escudo - the Legendary Doubloon - 18K Gold Pendant | Artifact #8320

The Legendary Pirate Era 22K Gold 2 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!

    Note from Robert: WOW! This is one of the most unique and rare pieces I have had the honor to work with. Not to mention is is stunningly beautiful with full cross, and full, zero die axis shield... meaning you can wear it facing either side out and the design won't be upside down.

    Very rare Cartagena, Columbia mint. "E" assayer's initials, and "+ II +" denomination, and a few other mint marks tell me that even though we can't see a visible date on this coin (it is off the edge, like it is on most coins of this type), I know it was struck in 1633.

    Beautiful, one-of-a-kind specimen. Strong, deep details on both sides... almost uncirucalted. 

    This coin was minted in Colombia, sailed across the Atlantic in a Spanish galleon headed to Spain. It was then lost after it arrived in Spain, and found hundreds of years later. Wow, if this coin could talk.

    I like to create a luxury weight 18K gold bezels for beautiful coins like this, that gives it a regal look and feel. I like to use 18K as most of the coins and jewelry from this time period were 22K to 24K (pure) gold.  

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

    All of this information, including the photos, will be included in our exstensive, gold standard documentation package.
