INFO ABOUT THE COIN.
Around the early 1600s, the heavily laden treasure galleon of King Philip IV's Tierra Firme Fleet, the Nuestra Senors De Atocha, struck a reef in a raging storm near the Florida Keys. More than two hundred and sixty persons perished and tons of gold, silver, and other precious cargo were lost to the sea.
The Spanish authorities were unconcerned with the shape of the coins or visible dates. They made them in denominations of 1/2, 1, 2, 4, and 8 Reales, and they were called"Pieces of Eight" or Cob coins. Which means the end of the bar.
