1709 Peruvian 8 Escudo NGC MS 61
This stunning, mint condition gold Escudo was struck in Colonial Peru in 1709 and sunk to the bottom of the ocean in 1715 where it laid undisturbed for nearly 300 years. Rarely do you encounter shipwreck “Cob” gold such as this in such a high state of preservation. The detail and strike are extraordinary and this is an absolute historic treasure in all regards. Phenomenal opportunity and Peruvian gold escudos are known around the world for their high quality craftsmanship.
