The Royal Presentation Piece from the 1715 Plate Fleet

Did you know that Stack’s Bowers Galleries will feature a
1711 Mexico “Royal” Presentation 8 Escudos from the 1715 Treasure Fleet in
their January 2021 Auction (an officially sanctioned auction of the NYINC). Lot
, graded by NGC as MS-66, is from a group of such Treasure Fleet coins
that are from the Las Colinas Collection.

The Spanish treasure fleet of 12 ships was traveling from
Havana, Cuba to Spain when, on the last day of July 1715, a hurricane struck
near Vero Beach, Florida. These ships were carrying silver, gold, and artifacts,
and there are coins that still wash up on the beach to this day. The Las
Colinas Collection features a number of these 1715 Plate Fleet coins, including
a 1695 8 Escudos graded NGC AU-50 (Lot
), a 1700 8 Escudos Cob graded NGC EF-45 (Lot
), a 1694 4 Escudos graded NGC AU-55 (Lot
), a 1701 4 Escudos graded NGC MS-61 (Lot
), and a 1714 8 Escudos graded NGC MS-62 (Lot
). To view all of the 1715 Treasure Fleet coins, visit our sale and
