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.

Grade 1+.  Excellent full cross with all lions and castles visible in the cross quadrants along with two bold digits of the date 1621 (both 1's are visible at the 9 and 12 o'clock position).  The lions are of the style of 1621 and are located in the quadrants normally occupied by the castles.  Deep struck shield with a bold assayer mark T at left and some visible legend along the edge.  Dated cobs, even partially dated ones, are very collectable and are relatively uncommon finds from the Atocha, particularly a full weight specimen like this.  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.

Grade 1+, beautiful full cross with all lions and castles visible along with the bottom of the digits 16 of the date 1618 between the 10 and 11 o'clock position along the edge.  Equally beautiful full shield with bold mint mark (P) and assayer mark (monogrammed PAL) at left, denomination mark VIII at right and much of the king's name visible along the right edge.  Coins of assayer PAL are rare, minted only in 1618, and are highly prized by those  collecting Atocha coins by assayer.  This beautiful specimen is one of the nicest that we've seen and is nearly full weight at 26.7 grams.  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.
