Atocha Shipwreck Coins

The Spanish galleon Nuestra Senora de Atocha, struck a reef and sank on September 6, 1622, during a raging hurricane near the Florida Keys.  Mel Fisher and his company Treasure Salvors, Inc., discovered the main wreck site on July 20, 1985 and ultimately recovered over 160,000 silver Spanish colonial coins.  The Atocha has the distinction of being the richest Spanish treasure galleon recovered to date.

Atocha Grade 1
Item#:  19015 (85A-213397)
Denomination:  8 reales
Mint:  Potosi
Assayer:  M (Not listed)
Weight:  26.3 grams
Diameter: 1.5-1.6 inches

Price:  $2295.00  BUY ITEM

 

Grade 1, Nice full cross with all lions and castles visible to varying degrees in the cross quadrants along with some legend.  But, of particular importance on the cross side, are the digits 61 with a space then the bottom of the 7 of the date 1617 located between the 10 and 11 o'clock position along the edge - highly significant in that this was the first year that dates were struck on Potosi mint coins.  This clear date was missed by the Fisher graders and is not listed on the tag or certificate.  The shield side is slightly double struck and has areas of flatness, but still most of the shield elements are visible along with very light and muddled mint and assayer marks P and M (separated by a dot) located just to the left of the shield.  Once again, these mark were missed by the graders and are not listed on the tag or certificate, but it's understandable as they are difficult to pick up.  Supplied with the original Mel Fisher's photo type Certificate of Authenticity (that was folded at one time) and a booklet "Shipwrecks and Their Coins: Volume 1 - 1622 Spanish Treasure Fleet" that provides details about the fleet and its coins.  View an example of an Original Style Mel Fisher's certificate.
