5 stars

RARE! Genuine .875 Fine Silver Half Reale Coin.

On January 11, 1784, the Spanish brig of war, El Cazador, set sail from Mexico to New Orleans (then Spanish territory) with a load of 450,000 pesos in Reales, a shipment needed to stabilize the Spanish colonies' economic system. Disaster struck and the El Cazador sank, along with the pesos and all Spanish hopes for North America.

Now you can get an authentic 1/ 2 Reale Silver Piece from the actual salvaged wreck of El Cazador, brought to you by the folks at the National Collector's Mint. Protective plastic holder, with a card detailing the history of the Coin.
