About Us

Bill Pearson and Atocha.com have always strived to bring you the best quality of Atocha coins in each grade. We have nearly 40 years of experience in the salvaging and selling of treasure coins and artifacts. Born in Key West, Florida, Bill Pearson owned and operated Conch Coin Company, one of the largest retail treasure businesses in the world. In 1993, Bill founded Forecastle Treasures, Inc., providing treasure coin jewelry at wholesale prices to the public. Forecastle Treasures has been on online since early 1996 - one of the first treasure coin dealers on the web.

Now, our primary business is the wholesale of Atocha and other treasure coins to jewelry stores throughout the U.S. and the Caribbean. However we reserve the rare Atocha two reale and other rare Atocha coins for online sale to benefit our many customers who have supported us over the last 25 years. We have been told that some of our prices are higher than other online sellers on some coins in each grade. We urge you to compare the quality of the coin that you see, not just the grade. Due to the numerous graders of Atocha coins and the urgency by the investors to get these Atocha coins to market after the discovery of the Nuestra Señora de Atocha off the coast of Key West, some coins were plainly misgraded, and some graders held Atocha coins to a higher standard than others. This resulted in many grading mistakes. We strive to pick the best Atocha coins in each grade. Our prices are always a great deal cheaper than Key West prices, and when you compare the quality against other websites, most of which don't have two reales from the Atocha, I think that you will find that you will have a much greater value purchasing one of ours. It pays to compare, but we feel you will find us the best everytime!

Forecastle Treasures, Inc. offers you beautiful, one-of-a-kind hand-crafted treasure coin jewelry from the Atocha and various other wrecks and sites. All coins are genuine, fully certified, and mounted in 14K and 18K gold or Sterling Silver, with prices starting as low as $125. Atocha coins in all grades are discounted from the Mel Fisher Museum prices and are certified by Mel himself.

Enjoy owning and wearing a "piece of history" provided by a well-known and experienced dealer. You can shop with confidence in the quality and authenticity of each Atocha piece, as well as, all other pieces.

Each treasure piece is unique! Most have been struck by hand, and they come in a variety of shapes. Rarely are the details or design fully legible. Our hand-crafted jewelry designs have been created to compliment the uniqueness of each one-of-a-kind treasure.

Therefore, no one else will own a treasure piece exactly like yours!
