Rooswijk Shipwreck Coins

The Dutch East Indiaman Rooswijk, under the command of Captain Daniel Ronzieres, was lost on December 19th, 1739 after striking the treacherous Goodwin Sands off the South East coast of England in a heavy storm.  The ship had just departed the Dutch port of Texel the previous day on her second voyage to the spice islands of Indonesia, carrying a large quantity of Spanish silver intended for trade and payroll in the Dutch East Indies.  She sank with the lost of all hands.  The shipwreck and her treasure was discovered 265 years later by Ken Welling, a British carpenter and sport diver, while swimming over the area in 2004.  Salvage operations, conducted under the supervision of archaeologist Alex Hildred, has produced vast amounts of Spanish pillar dollars, cob coins, and silver bars most of which were returned to the Netherlands government.

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