Description

The title of most famous coin in history probably would go to the piece of eight. Known officially as an eight reale, this silver Spanish coin traded for a period of three hundred years.Due to Its uniform purity and weight it was recognized in commerce worldwide and traded everywhere including the new world and even in the far east. The most famous shipwreck to yield superb pieces of eight was the Nuestra Senora de Atocha which sank in a violent story in 1622 while transporting precious cargo back to Spain from the new world. You can read more about this historic shipwreck in our article below. This pendant, set in a handcrafted 14kt yellow gold frame, features a beautiful Grade 2 example of an Atocha 8 Reale silver coin. Grade 2 coins from the Atocha are quite rare and seldom available. Recovered beginning in 1985 by the famous treasure hunter Mel Fisher, this is one of the finer coins recovered and is accompanied by Mel Fisher's original signed certificate. Your gift boxed pendant will arrive on your choice of necklace. Read more about The Atocha here
