Atocha Shipwreck Coins

The Spanish galleon Nuestra Senora de Atocha, struck a reef and sank on September 6, 1622, during a raging hurricane near the Florida Keys.  Mel Fisher and his company Treasure Salvors, Inc., discovered the main wreck site on July 20, 1985 and ultimately recovered over 160,000 silver Spanish colonial coins.  The Atocha has the distinction of being the richest Spanish treasure galleon recovered to date.

Grade 1+, Nice full cross with all lions and castles visible to varying degrees in the cross quadrants.  But, of particular importance on the cross side, are 3 digits of the date 1617 located between the 10 and 12 o'clock position along the edge - highly significant in that this was the first year that dates were struck on Potosi mint coins.  Excellent, beautifully struck shield side with details that include a full shield with the crown above, mint and assayer marks P and M at left and denomination mark VIII (with O above) at right (with the V actually struck below the III - very rare).  An excellent, large diameter, heavy weight, dated coin with lots of visible legend around the edges - highly desirable as such.  Supplied with the new style Mel Fisher's photo type Certificate of Authenticity, a booklet "Shipwrecks and Their Coins: Volume 1 - 1622 Spanish Treasure Fleet" that provides details about the fleet and its coins, and the book "Sweat of the Sun, Tears of the Moon", personally autographed by the author, Syd Jones.  View an example of a New Style Mel Fisher's certificate.
