This gold escudo features on its obverse, the crowned Spanish Bourbon Coat-of-arms, with mintmark MXo and assayer mark J left, and denomination "I" right, with borders of pellets containing the legend "PHILIPPVS•V•DEI•G•1711"-
and on its reverse, a bold Jerusalem Cross, with Fleur de Lis in the spaces and small crescents in the corners forming its quatrefoil. A border of pellets seperates the legend "HISPANIARVM•ET•INDIARVM•REX+"

Each element on this modern artisan reproduction, was hand stamped into the dies from punches that were carefully hand carved by our die sinker, and then hammer struck exactly like the originals. No two of these coins are exactly alike in shape, size or strike. Making each coin unique to its collector.

The "Crescents" Type design was a transitional design struck between 1711 and 1712. It was struck at the same time the mint began striking the "Crosslets" design, which would become the new gold coin design from 1711-1713. This rarer crosslet version, is only a 2 year type, as the mint reused the 1711 reverse dies for some coins of 1712. Shame, as it was a beautiful design. It is offered here as a gold escudo, which was worth two pieces of eight in its day. High above the average persons monthly wage. But we also offer it in silver, as an escudo.
These coins were crudely made, but we are offering it as a standard cob strike, or a slightly more "rounded" shape to preserve more details in your coin.
This coin is offered in 24K (.9999), 22K (91.7%) and in silver.
We offer these pieces in their original, and modern weights.

NOTE! With the current increase in gold spot prices, (today gold sits at $2,400 USD), prices on gold coins are subject to change, and an order may be cancelled if the spot prices jump over night, and go above our current prices (sorry). And due to the availability of gold, there may be a delay in any orders placed for gold bullion. If there is, we will contact you and let you know.
We do not charge TAX, however Paypal may automatically include taxes if you live in a state with sales tax.
