Vliegenthart Shipwreck Coins

The Vliegenthart (Flying Hart), a Dutch East Indiaman, was lost on February 3rd, 1735 after striking a sand bank off the coast of Zealand.  Every one of the 461 sailors, soldiers and merchants aboard perished.  The vessel, sailing out of the Netherlands port of Rammekens, carried three chests of gold and silver (mainly Dutch gold ducats and Spanish colonial pieces of eight from the Mexico mint), for trade in the East Indies.  Search operations conducted by Rex Cowen and John Rose in collaboration with the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, resulted in the wrecks discovery in late 1981.  The work is financed by the sale of recovered material offered only after it is examined and cataloged by the National Museum, The Coin Cabinet in Leyden Holland.
