    Sao Jose... the Portuguese Shipwreck Loaded with Shinning Silver Spanish Treasure

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

    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.

    Your Sao Jose Shipwreck Treasure Coin

    • Date: Circa 1598-1621
    • Denomination: 2 Reale (rare denomination for this wreck)
    • Mint: Seville, Spain
    • Ruler: King Philip III of Spain
    • Coin Metal: Silver
    • Bezel Metal: 14K Gold
    • Articulating Nautical Shackle Bail Interior Diameter: Will accommodate chain or leather necklace up to 5.8mm
    • Pendant Size: 1" Across, 1 3/8" Tall (great pendant size - Just a bit larger than a US Quarter)
    • Obverse (Front): The Greek Cross 
    • Reverse: (Back): The shield of King Philip III of Spain

    Robert's Notes: Stunning cross and shield. Beautiful lions and castles, and II denomination mark. The condition of this coin indicates it was gently removed from inside the remains of a treasure chest. The cross side was facing in and thus protected from the harsh environment of the ocean, and is in perfect condition.
