Minted in Potosi/ Bolivia, at that time a Spanish colony in South America, Philip III period, between 1598-1621. Handsomely crude silver treasure (cob) coin. Really good condition with details like Arms of Castille and Leon well recognizable. Nice and deep struck cross on the other side. Sea salvaged and with marks due to the time the coin spent in salt water.

The coin was ANACS authenticated. To make the pendant we took the coin of it's coin holder case, but you will receive it with the coin.

The coin is safely held by a bezel setting, made from sterling silver. The 4 prongs are made from solid 14k yellow gold. Polished finish. The bails will accommodate chains up to 5mm in diameter.

"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.
