Lucayan Beach - 8 Reales
Item#:  15023
Denomination:  8 reales
Mint:  Mexico
Assayer:  D
Weight:  25.2 grams
Diameter: 1.5-1.6 inches

Price:  $595.00  SOLD

 

Recovered from the Lucayan Beach wreck, named after Lucayan Beach Grand Bahama Island, where the wreck was discovered in 1964.   Popular belief ties this wreck to the Dutch hero Piet Heyn who captured the entire 1628 Spanish fleet at Matanzas Bay, Cuba.   Two of his ships were lost near Grand Bahama Island during their return voyage home; it seems likely that the Lucayan Beach wreck is one of Heyn's lost ships.

Coin description:  Shield type cob, 8 reales, Mexico mint, Philip IV, assayer D, dated 1624.  Nice, deeply struck full cross with two bold castles and two partial lions visible in the cross quadrants.  Nearly full shield with bold mint and assayer marks oM and D at left, denomination mark 8 at right and light digits of the date 1624 visible between the 8 and 10 o'clock position near the edge.  Supplied with the original Spink and Son, LTD display box and a New World Treasures photo certificate of authenticity.
