Consolacion Shipwreck Coins

The Consolacion, a Spanish Armada del Sur (South Sea Armada) galleon, was lost in 1681 after striking a reef near Guayaquil Ecuador.  A delay in receiving silver coins from the mint in Potosi prevented the Santa Maria de la Consolacion from sailing with the rest of the armada from Callao, Chile.  When the lone ship met pirates, the captain decided to ground the Consolacion on Santa Clara island, nicknamed Isla de Muerto (Island of the Dead), but struck a reef in the process.  The vessel was evacuated and intentionally set on fire by the crew to prevent the plunder of treasure.  Modern day salvage operations has resulted in the recovery of the remaining material, mostly Spanish colonial pillars and waves type cobs from the famous Potosi mint.

Certificates of Authenticity accompany all Consolacion Shipwreck treasure coins.  View a typical original Consolacion certificate of authenticity.
