 Princess Louisa Coin Jewelry

The Princess Louisa, a British East India Company merchant ship, was lost on April 18th, 1743 after striking a reef off the Isle of May in the Cape Verde Island chain.  As part of her cargo, she carried 20 chests of Spanish and Spanish colonial currency, a total of 69,760 ounces of silver, for trade for silk and spices in the far east city of Bombay and in Persia.  Her treasure lie undiscovered for over 255 years until a 1998-1999 salvage operation located and recovered the valuable artifacts.

Certificates of Authenticity and a pamphlet on the history of the Princess Louisa accompany all Princess Louisa shipwreck treasure coins.
