Grade 2 Atocha Coins

Grade 2 Atocha coins lack the clarity or detail of Grade 1 coins. The cause is usually due to corrosion from years of salt water exposure, but sometimes from imperfections in the minting process itself. The obverse and reverse sides, although not as clear, may show portions of the cross and shield, mintmark, assayer mark and denomination; but seldom all at once.  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.  Display your Atocha coin and Certificate of Authenticity in our multiple sleeved display folder Mount your Atocha coin in a 14k Gold Bezel.

Grade 2+, nicely centered, double struck full cross with the lions and castles visible to varying degrees in the cross quadrants and surrounded by a border of squares versus traditional dots, commonly found on assayer B's coins at the beginning of Philip III's reign.  Nearly full, double struck shield with the assayer mark B at left and some of the crown visible above.  An excellent grade 2 coin with all of the important details visible and more desirable in that it is an earlier issue coin - not as common as most coins found on the Atocha.  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 2+, bold struck cross side details including a full cross with all lions and castles visible in the cross quadrants.  Of particular importance on the cross side is the 161 of the date 1617 between the 9 and 11 o'clock position in the peripheral legend.  Excellent full shield with a bold assayer mark M at left and denomination mark VIII (8 reales) at right.  Coins of assayer M are very collectable.  He was a two year assayer (1616-1617) at the Potosi mint and his coins, of which this is one, were the very first to be struck with dates in 1617. A very desirable grade 2 coin with a rarely found partial date.  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.
