Reproduction Money Chain 24" over 4 OZ with a length of 24 Inches
(REPRODUCTION/ REPLICA) MONEY CHAIN 24” 22kt. OVER 4oz! REPRODUCTION. Of 1622 ATOCHA & 1715 FLEET style PIRATE GOLD COINS TREASURE We have (in our eBay store) a 19” Authentic Money Chain from the 1622 ATOCHA Fleet (Santa Margarita) for approx. $75k. We have many many Collectors who really would like to have a PURE GOLD MONEY CHAIN, so we used a Custom Mold from an Authentic 1622 ATOCHA CHAIN with both style links (56 Links at 24” Each link is approx 5/8"), both Twisted and Oval w/edge and poured them in 22 KARAT PURE GOLD!!! Then we added a Period (1600’s – 1700’s) HOOK & LOOP Clasp System (just as they did back in the Pirate Days), clasp also in 18kt Pure Gold so it’s even stronger. The weight is over 4.15 OUNCES! The Original MONEY CHAINS have every other Link open (the twisted links) so that they could be used in Every Day Commerce, by simple twisting the link enough to open it up and remove from the chain they could pay for everyday purchases. These MONEY or WEDDING CHAINS were Tax Free, as all jewelry was, so when shipping back from the New World to the Old World in Spain the 20% Quinto was alleviated. Many of these Chains were created as Wedding Chains (gifts) generally for Wealthy Merchant families or Royalty. We have several pictures from Archives of Queens wearing these beautiful and eloquent Wedding Chains (some of them must have weight 10 or even 20 ounces, drapped over their wedding gowns), it’s amazing they could even stand up. Authentic Money Chains can run between $75 and $400,000! And would not be recommended to wear that level of Rare History around your neck!
