Product Description

This fantastic genuine coin from the Atocha was part of the collection of the largest investor with Mel Fisher in the search, Vanguard Ventures. The chest that this coin came from was cleaned one at a time personally by Ted and Leah Miguel. General Lee on a grade two from a chest cleaned by Ted and Leah compared to grade ones cleaned at the museum. This one is no different, having great detail. It was minted at the Potosi Mint during the reign of Philip III of Spain, 1598-1621. The Obverse Bears the royal shield and crown of Phillip. The denomination oVIII is visible to the right. The reverse features the Crusaders Cross with lions and castles. The coin is mounted securely in a wonderful heavy three-dimensional 14 karat gold mermaid bezel. Ted must’ve thought this coin was special because he kept it for his personal collection as you can see by his signature at the bottom. Scarce, and an extra bonus for the lucky buyer of this coin. The size of this beautiful piece is about the size of a US silver dollar. It is accompanied by the original certificate as issued.  Ted worked to find the Atocha for years running his boat and crew in the search and salvage. His wife Leah was the corporate secretary for Treasure Salvors. This is a true treasure. In the old days the coin alone would have sold at the Fisher’s in Key West for $2400. However in the last year the prices have escalated a great deal on a monthly basis in anticipation of the 400th anniversary of the sinking next year in 2022. Now this coin would be worth over $5500 and that is without the bezel. Don’t miss Out at this low price of only $4295.00.
