Please Note: This is an authentic Princess Louisa Shipwreck Treasure Coin, and you will receive the exact pendant in the photographs and description.
FOR PENDANT SIZE SEE COIN DETAILS BELOW:
Ships like Princess Louisa were the largest, and the most beautiful, in the British merchant marine and were only rivaled by the larger galleons of Spain and Portugal. They had evolved during the 130 years that England had been trading with the East and were now big, but graceful ships; strong, fast, well-armed and eminently suited for the long and dangerous passages they had to make.
But treacherous currents, combined with inaccurate charts, sealed Princess Louisa's fate in the shallow shoals off the Cape Verde Islands. Like most trade ships of her day, the trade coinage she was loaded with were Spanish, not British.
Robert's Notes: Beautiful condition for its age. This Princess Louisa silver 1 Reale is a rare example of the famed "Piece of Eight" of this era; deeply struck, very visible date ("736"), and with a clear denomination, and Pillars and Waves design. Partial "PLVS VLTRA" meaning More Beyond the Pillars of Hercules
