Atocha Shipwreck 8 Reales Silver Coin. This coin was made under Philip III Reign at the Petosi Mint, high in the Andes Mountains. The coin dates somewhere in between those dates. This one is really nice.
Very clean on both sides and to me it is a Grade 1 or 2. The very best part of this Silver coin is it's weight. I've never seen one bigger than this.The Petosi Mint was known for its inferior quality and weight but this one has a great strike and weighs in at 26.1 grams. Over a gram more than I've seen for sale.
The Castles on the obverse are clear and clean and you can see the Lions on the opposite corners of the cross.
