Spanish Copper ‘Pirate’ Money
Copper Cobs from the reign of King Philippe IV, 1621-1665AD. It’s a lucky dip. Caked in dirt, the detail will be revealed once you clean the coin, with Distilled Water and patience. (We’ll send you some water in a jar along with cleaning instructions.) Your coin may be stamped with monograms, symbols, Roman numerals and dates from when the coin was re-tariffed under late rulers. Found at the site of a late Medieval Harbour in Spain where pirates were known to have gathered to plunder Spanish Galleons for their riches. Hold history in your hands.
