1713 Mexico Gold Cob 8 Escudo
From the 1715 Fleet Shipwreck

The 1713 Mexico Gold Cob 8 Escudo, certified by NGC in Mint State 65, is a remarkable artifact of numismatic and historical significance. This gem-quality coin is one of the finest known examples from this date, distinguished by its superb hand-hammered design and outstanding preservation. With very few specimens recovered, this piece stands as a testament to the rich history and artistry of the colonial era.

The obverse of the coin features an intricately detailed coat of arms, representing the Spanish Empire's grandeur and authority. The craftsmanship of the Mexican mint is evident in the fine details and clarity of the design, making this coin a standout example of early 18th-century minting.
