One Coin Per Purchase Introducing the Spanish Copper Maravedis from the 1600s, a rare and unique piece of history. Minted in Madrid during the reign of King Philip IV, these small denomination coins feature intricate designs, including shields of arms, castles, lions, and counterstamps indicating denomination. What makes these coins truly special is their association with real pirates. These maravedis would have been circulated alongside gold and silver coins, making them a valuable addition to any pirate's loot.
The Spanish 8 Maravedis Copper Coin is a remarkable find, with its obverse displaying a rampant lion in a crowned shield with the legend 'HISPANIARVM REX' (King of Spain) and the 1625 date. The reverse side features a castle in a crowned shield with the legend 'PHILIP PVS IV D G' (Philip IV, by the grace of God), along with the denomination 'VIII' for 8 maravedis.
Philip IV's rule was during the 'Golden Age of Spain' when Spain was the foremost global power with vast territories and colonies in Europe, the Americas, Asia, and Oceana. With the discovery of untold riches in the Americas, the Spanish became the premier supplier of gold and silver coins worldwide, which led to increased shipping trade and wealth among merchants. The copper maravedi, valued at 34 maravedis equal to one silver real, was minted in denominations of 8, 4, 2, and 1 as the smallest silver coins were too large for most transactions.
The Spanish Copper Maravedis heavily circulated during the 1600s and were commonly used in daily transactions, including by pirates, making them a one-of-a-kind piece of history. These coins are a valuable addition to any collection with each coin telling its own unique story. Don't miss the opportunity to own a genuine piece of history from the Age of Exploration with the Spanish Copper Maravedis from the 1600s.
