1668. 1 Reale Cob Coin, Spanish Colonial Pirate Silver
This particular coin is marked 1668 - the year Henry Morgan sacked the allegedly impenetrable city of Portobello. Portobello was strategic for export of precious metals from the New World to Spain. Morgan spared the city from total destruction for a hefty ransom of over 800,000 reales.
- Hot struck from ~2.5-3 grams of 99.9 pure silver
- Just like the originals, each is hand struck, so allow for slight irregularity and variance from the photos
- Each coin shipped outside of Canada is marked discreetly with a tiny punch on the back making it a legal 'replica'
