From the wreck of El Cazador, Spanish galleon sunk in 1784 off New Orleans. Fantastic silver 8-reale "Piece of Eight". America's first silver dollar! The most valuable circulating coin in the New World. Bears the bust of Charles III, the reverse pillars believed to be what inspired the "$" dollar sign used today. Huge 40 mm, 23.67 grams and thick. Very cool piece of history.
