Description

In colonial times, the British Empire's colonies minted few coins, and were forbidden to trade with other nations. Yet Americans found ways to acquire valuable silver Spanish 8 Reale Dollars and the "2-bit" 2 Reale Quarters made from them. Now you can own America' First Silver Quarter Coin, a genuine 2 Reales Silver Coin over 200 years old, recovered from the El Cazador shipwreck. The ship vanished in the Gulf of Mexico in 1784 and its loss led to the sale of Spain's Louisiana territory to France, and ultimately to America's Louisiana Purchase.

Imagine owning such a pivotal piece of history! Available ONLY from The Bradford Exchange Mint, this extraordinary presentation of this historic silver quarter is a truly rare collecting opportunity. Authenticated by the prestigious NGC (Numismatic Guaranty Corporation), these spectacular coins are minted in pure silver and feature the year of mintage and a portrait of the reigning King of Spain on the obverse side. The reverse side features Spain's crowned coat of arms flanked by the Pillars of Hercules, with the motto "PLUS VLTRA" on scrolls unfurled around the pillars (this pillar and scroll combination is thought to have inspired the American dollar sign, "$"). Your coin arrives in a crystal-clear tamper-proof holder, and is showcased in a handsome mahogany-finished Deluxe Display Box with a gleaming title plaque. Do not miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own genuine shipwreck silver and America's FIRST Silver Quarter Coin. Strong demand is expected, and you must hurry. Order now!
