Grade 1 Atocha Coins

Grade 1 Atocha coins were salvaged from the interior most portion of the treasure chest, and thus exhibit minimal amounts of salt water damage.  Typically, they are clearly struck on both the obverse and reverse sides with the mintmark, assayer mark and denomination often all visible.  Atocha coins are supplied with the original photo type Certificate of Authenticity and a booklet "Shipwrecks and Their Coins: Volume 1 - 1622 Spanish Treasure Fleet" that provides details about the fleet and its coins.  Grade 1 coins are also supplied with the book "Sweat of the Sun, Tears of the Moon", personally autographed by the author, Syd Jones.  Display your Atocha coin and Certificate of Authenticity in our multiple sleeved display folder.  Mount your Atocha coin in a 14k Gold Bezel.

Grade 1, a nice "as struck" coin with no signs of salt water corrosion, but with flatness on the cross side that obscures much of the cross details.  Because of the coin's very heavy weight and large diameter, lots of legend is visible around the edge, including the full King's ordinal III (Philip III) at the 5 o'clock position on the shield side.  The cross side details identify this coin as being struck in 1617 or later.  Supplied with the original photo type Certificate of Authenticity, a booklet "Shipwrecks and Their Coins: Volume 1 - 1622 Spanish Treasure Fleet" that provides details about the fleet and its coins, and the book "Sweat of the Sun, Tears of the Moon", personally autographed by the author, Syd Jones.  An inexpensive grade 1 coin.
