$5,063.00 USD

The Colombia Gold Escudo was minted during the reign of King Philip V of Spain, who had the longest reign in Spanish history, spanning 45. The coins from the 1715 Fleet are of great historic relevance as they represent the wealth of the Spanish Empire and the risks of sea voyages during that era. The shipwreck and its treasure have been the subject of numerous salvage operations.

Features the coat of arms of the reigning Spanish monarch at the time of minting. For coins minted under King Philip V, this would be his royal shield.

Often depicts the Cross of Jerusalem, which was a common symbol on Spanish escudos of the period.
