    The Pirate Piece of Eight - Buried Treasure for the Treasure Hunter in All of Us!

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

    When we think of the treasure coins of pirate lore, the silver Spanish colonial coins of Central and South America immediately come to mind. 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 silver 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!

    Robert's Note: Stunning condition for its age with a highly desirable cross and great shield detail. Very nice "oM" Mexico City mint mark, and "173" visible date. Since the dates were on the edge, next to the mint mark, less than 2% of the Mexico City mint coins have visible dates. It's hard to see on the photos, but in hand it is beautiful.
