  • overall pendant hanging length is 29.5mm (1.16 inches) including the bail

Minted around 1600 from silver in Bolivia, Philip II period. Fine condition with a well struck cross on one side and the Coat of Arms on the other side. 2 Reales denomination, measuring 22x19x1mm, and weighing 3.13 grams. Clipped coin, that was found 40cm deep buried in a pasture.

Safely held by a 4-prong sterling silver setting. Bail opening is 4mm. Polished surface finish.

"Cob" coins are the original "treasure coins." Struck and trimmed by hand in the 1500s through 1700s at Spanish mints in Mexico, Peru, Colombia and Bolivia (among others), silver and gold cobs are crude, nearly all with a cross as the central feature on one side and either a coat-of-arms (shield) or "pillars and waves" on the other side. Size and shape were immaterial, which means that most cobs are far from round or uniform in thickness. Cobs were generally accepted as good currency all around the world.

This coin is NOT a replica, but a real ancient artifact. It is authentic, as all of our coins are and was purchased from a trusted and reliable source. You will receive a Certificate of Authenticity.
