Monaco Rare Coins is excited to announce the immediate availability of more than 200 gold coins recovered from the shipwrecks of the legendary 1715 Spanish Treasure Fleet.
The origin of these beautiful gold treasures are traced to the “1715 Fleet” which was returning from the New World to Spain to replenish the King’s vaults after a long and costly war between France and Spain known as the Spanish War of Succession. That war almost bankrupted the Spanish crown, and the treasure in the holds of the 12-ship fleet was needed to help restore the crown to its glory.
The 1715 Fleet was struck by a fierce hurricane off the coast of what is today Vero Beach, Florida and 11 of the 12 ships sank on July 30, 1715. Although Spanish recovery efforts did yield much of the treasure over the ensuing months, it was impossible to recover all of the treasure due to the limited technology available at the time.
The 1715 Fleet shipwrecks were largely forgotten until some adventurist divers made it a mission to recover the lost treasure some 300 years later. The 200+ gold coins minted in Colombia, Mexico and Peru that are being offered here are the result of last year’s 300th anniversary of the Atlantic Ocean hurricane that sank the doomed fleet.
But you’re going to have to act fast, because these New World gold treasures will not last long.
These historic treasure gold pieces have been examined, authenticated and graded by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). All but five are amazingly preserved and graded in mint-state condition, one of them in MS66.
Mark Salzberg, chairman of NGC had this to say about these amazing coins: “Coinage of the 1715 Fleet offers up rare riches, providing researchers a unique opportunity to study the trade and transport of the day and gives collectors the chance to acquire a high-grade example of a coin from the golden shipwreck treasure of lore. A quantity of uncirculated Spanish gold coins like this simply doesn’t exist outside of shipwreck discovery.”
Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to add some of these amazing gold coins to your collection or gold coin investment portfolio. These incredible gold rarities from the New World represent the finest examples of late 17th and early 18th century Spanish colonial gold coinage and are powerful symbols of the wealth and power of the mighty Spanish empire of the day.
