Sao Jose 4 Reale Pirate Era Circa 1610 Shipwreck Coin 14K Gold Pendant | Artifact #8282

Sao Jose... the Portuguese Shipwreck Loaded with Shinning Silver Spanish Treasure - Now in an Heirloom Pendant

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

FOR PENDANT SIZE SEE COIN DETAILS BELOW

In early spring of 1622, the towering Portuguese Carrack Sao Jose hastily left the port of Lisbon bound for Goa, India, loaded with treasure – both silver and V.I.P.s … she would meet her fate on a reef off the Mozambique coast just a few months later. And her story remains one of the most fascinating of all shipwrecks to this day.

Then, along an isolated stretch of East African coast, she was rediscovered by a Portuguese marine archaeology group in May of 2005. The astounding discovery brought 24,000 silver reales from the watery depth of "Davy Jones Locker" to light – shinning testaments to once great empires and the storied Spice Trade of the East.

Robert's Notes: Stunning cross and shield, with sweet "4" denomination. Incredible, crisp lions and castles. 

Partial HISPANIARVM REX (Latin for King of Spain) around the edge on cross side.

The condition of this coin indicates it was gently removed from inside the remains of a treasure chest. It's hard to find any finer coin.
