NEW!! 1715 Fleet Commemorative “Piece of Eight”
Brand New! 2019 die set.
Mexico City Mint, 1715 8 Reales “J”, Philip V Spanish colonial reproduction cob.
Unlike the original 2015 Fleet commemorative, the dies for these commemorative reproductions took 3 years to complete. These are the longest time we have ever spent making a die set. And the end result is a replica that looks so authentic, that those who have always dreamed of owning the key date rarity of the Spanish 1715 Fleet can now own a reproduction that’s so close to the originals, it will look and feel like the real thing.
Following the exact and we do mean exact same methods used by the mint in 1715. Each element was hand sunk (cold) via punch into the dies, that we use to hand hammer strike our “treasure cobs” by slicing blanks from long crude straps of silver.
You will not find a better replica guaranteed!
Modern methods such as engraving by hand or machine, acid etching, or the ugly 3D printed coins that you see everywhere are just not pleasing. And they cost more than what we charge!
It took people with specific skills that the moneyers paid a great deal to learn. And we wanted to match that. So we spent several years studying these very coins until we understood exactly how they were made. We took our time. Making each punch as a die set of its own - as was originally done.
We are extremely proud to offer this. And know you will absolutely love these coins as well.
You are buying the only modern reproduction Mexico mint, 1715 8 Reales (Neat New Style) assayer J, Philip V, in existence ever made. Using not only the genuine traditional way. But with painstaking effort to every single detail. This artisan reproduction is struck on planchettes prepparred identically to the originals.
