 Spanish Cob Coin Jewelry

Cob coins were hand manufactured by cutting blanks from crudely cast bars of refined silver or gold and hand hammered between crudely engraved dies.  They lack the detail of modern machine struck coins, but each is unique in shape and strike, which makes them so interesting.

Certificates of Authenticity accompany all Spanish Coin Jewelry.

Shield type cob, 4 reales, Madrid mint, Philip IV, assayer (B), dated 1642, very fine condition.  A beautiful cob with a full cross and shield, both boldly struck and nicely centered with flatness along the edges.  The date 1642 is absolutely certain, but attribution gets more difficult from there.  The cross side lions and castles are of the style of Madrid, even though flatness over the mint and assayer marks does not allow for a positive confirmation.  A great coin for those who desire a fully dated cob with a great cross and shield.  Coin is mounted in a 14k gold bezel with fixed bale, and with the bezel, is about the size of a half dollar.
