Hundreds of years ago, Spain controlled the massive silver mines of Mexico and South America, from whose ore they struck thousands of big silver 8 reales coins, the forbears of our own American silver dollars. The problem? Getting ships laden with silver treasure safely to Europe through the pirate-riddled waters of the Atlantic and Caribbean. It was a treacherous trip, and many a battle resulted in massive shipwrecks and sunken treasure by the ton. Now relive the days of pirates and galleons with our “Pirate’s Booty” Eight Reale. This is a 100% authentic Spanish 8 reale emblazoned by us with the age-old pirate flag motif known as the Jolly Roger. The frightening skull and crossbones symbolized death, which was the likely outcome if you encountered these fearsome privateers during your voyage! As genuine Spanish reales become more and more difficult to find, this pirate booty will disappear too, so get yours now.
