SHIPWRECK TREASURE 1550 GOLDEN FLEECE FLEET SILVER DISK SPLASH PIRATE GOLD COINS
This INGOT DISK / SPLASH weighs 815 Grams and is approx. 6" in Diameter (1/4" thick)! There are (2) COA's Certifying this piece of Treasure. This beautiful piece of Treasure has "markings" of the Fineness (IIU CCC L) = 2350 of 2400 in purity. Also, there are (TWO) VERY clear markings of the CROWNED "C" TAX STAMPS! There's a square shaped Cut (possibly Assayer's bite, although it's a big bite, lol). We've carried one other Splash previously, but typically these do not have any visible "Markings," but this one certainly does and they are very very clear markings! Truly a piece of History and Significant Treasure from almost 500 years ago!
GOLDEN FLEECE ~ This mystery galleon sunk in the mid 1550's in the Northern Caribbean Sea. The ROYAL STAMP "C" for CHARLES I (reign ended 1556), whom was credited with reviving the medieval order of the GOLDEN FLEECE in Spain in the early 1500's. The Collar of the Glden Fleece appears on later (1700's) milled Gold coins of Spain. These markings on Gold Bars were the first appearance of the Golden Fleece in the New World! These markings, showing two pillars with the Collar of the Order of the Golden Fleece hanging below the castle.
