Rare Triple Dated 1655 Consolacion Shipwreck Pirate 1 Reale Cob 18K Gold Necklace | Artifact #3555

Size Guide

Pirates! Perhaps no other class of seafarers is quite so famous – or infamous!

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

But tying shipwreck coins to actual pirates is rare – most treasure galleons sank due to hurricanes, poor navigation or lack of upkeep.  But the Treasure of Isla de Muerto (The Treasure of Dead Man’s Island) is the exception… for her cache of glittering treasure went to the bottom because of – yes, you guessed it – PIRATES!

This Piece of Eight, salvaged from the wreckage of the doomed Spanish galleon Consolacion, is especially rare – very few 1 Reales were minted compared to the larger, silver-dollar-sized 8 Reale.

Robert's Notes: This is one of the most incredible coins I have ever seen recovered from Consolacion! It has THREE dates! Usually, only one date is visible on this type of coin. Amazing condition for a 1 Reale coin... stunning "1655" date! That is why I set it in 18kt gold. It is from the inside of a clump of coins which was once part of a "treasure chest," which preserved its detail. It has a beautiful, centered cross, stunning "PLUS ULTRA" and is perfect pendant size! Truly regal for the pirate queen or king!
