These very early coins are considered “priceless“ at the museum in Key West. Each was found loose on the bottom of the ocean and have a lot of sea wear. What makes them extremely valuable is that they have the original five signature certificate as issued in 1975. Each has the original signature of Duncan Matthewson, marine archaeologist, Eugene Lyons, historian, Austin Fowles, conservator, Mel Fisher president of Treasure Salvors, and his wife Dolores Fisher secretary. The original picture of the coin is also on the certificate as are all the seals from that. Grading was done by points in those days to establish a relative value. This coin would be a grade three plus from that time, and would have sold for $260 in 1975 or 1976. Grade three four reales sell at the museum now for $1200 apiece, and that’s not for one with these very rare certificates. An incredible Coin for any historian or collector of coins from this fabulous shipwreck.
