Recovered from the wreck of the Spanish galleon Santa Margarita , sister ship to the Atocha.  Both were lost during a hurricane near the Florida Keys on September 6, 1622 and were salvaged by Mel Fisher and his company, Treasure Salvors Inc.  Santa Margarita coins are rare in comparison to those from the Atocha.

Sea Salvaged - most likely recovered from the Atocha, but lacking the paperwork to positively identify it as such.  Using Mel Fisher's grading system, this would be graded as grade 1 coin.

Lucayan Beach - 8 Reales
Item#:  13004

Diameter: 1.5-1.6 inches

Recovered from the Lucayan Beach wreck, named after Lucayan Beach Grand Bahama Island, where the wreck was discovered in 1964.   Popular belief ties this wreck to the Dutch hero Piet Heyn who captured the entire 1628 Spanish fleet at Matanzas Bay, Cuba.   Two of his ships were lost near Grand Bahama Island during their return voyage home; it seems likely that the Lucayan Beach wreck is one of Heyn's lost ships.

Coin description:  Shield type cob, 8 reales, Mexico mint, Philip IV, assayer D, circa 1620's.  Excellent, deeply struck full cross with two bold castles and one bold lion visible in the cross quadrants.  Deep struck, nearly full shield with mint and assayer marks oM and D at left.  A large, heavy, ruggedly appealing Mexico cob; one of the nicest we've seen from this wreck.  Supplied with the original Spink and Son, LTD display box with small certificate and a New World Treasures photo certificate of authenticity.
