Authentic Spanish Copper "Pirate" Coins for Sale
These wonderful coins date from the 1500's through 1600's, during the "Golden Age" of piracy in Europe.
They were land-found at the site of a late Medieval seaport in Spain, where pirates were believed to have raided Spanish galleons for their riches. Although it is impossible to prove exactly who may have handled these coins, they were the standard currency at the time and have been found at known pirate sites, including the famous Oak Island site (and I have a credit on that episode of "The Curse of Oak Island" for my assistance and attribution). There are similar specimens offered below.
