Recovered from an unknown shipwreck - possibly the Atocha, but lacking the paperwork to positively identify it as such.  Using Mel Fisher's grading system, this would be graded as a high end grade 1 coin.

Coin description:   Shield type cob, Lima mint, Philip II, assayer D, circa 1577-1588.  Struck during the term of the famous assayer oD (Diego de la Torre) who was known for his high quality and extremely detailed coinage.  Excellent, nicely centered full cross with all lions and castles boldly visible in the cross quadrants and with nearly full legends around the periphery.  Equally nice full shield with all shield elements visible along with a star and flat top 8 at left and mint and assayer marks P and oD at right.  The star is found only on Lima mint coins, symbolizing that the City was officially established on January 6th, the day of the Star of Magi that guided the three kings to Bethlehem.  Coins of assayer Diego de la Torre are highly collectable and in great demand.  Supplied with a New World Treasures photo type Certificate of Authenticity.

Item#:  15085
Denomination:  8 reales
Mint:  Mexico
Assayer:  D
Weight:  26.1 grams
Diameter: 1.5-1.6 inches

Price:  $495.00  BUY ITEM

 

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, circa 1620's.  Nice, deeply struck full cross with two bold castles and two partial lions visible in the cross quadrants.  Nearly full shield with an ever so light assayer mark D (also confirmed by style) at left.  Supplied with the original Spink and Son, LTD display box with small certificate and a New World Treasures photo certificate of authenticity.
