Limited-edition 1-ounce silver medal made from Atocha silver by the Mexico City mint in custom Lucite holder and clamshell case. 27.27 grams. This is basically a Mexican 8-reales Royal restrike, as the design is completely accurate for a 1621 specimen, yet it is clearly not intended to deceive and comes housed in a special Lucite holder that is embossed with GENUINE LOST SILVER TREASURE OF THE ATOCHA (showing the coin inside a fanciful treasure chest) inside a clamshell case accompanied by a small certificate of authenticity explaining that the silver used to make the coin came from the Atocha (presumably from one of the huge silver bars) and that the coin was officially "restruck" at the Casa de Moneda in Mexico City, complete with a mint official's signature at the bottom (unfortunately undated but probably late 1980s or early 1990s), the mintage limited to 10,000 pieces. Pedigreed to the Mark Bir collection.
