The daggers (swords) surround the coin from top to bottom. There is no other like it. The dagger handles and detail is just spectacular.
What an adornment this bezel makes to this Atocha artifact. Since this coin was made in approximately 1600 it is well over 400 years old already! For many, the smaller 2 or 4 Reales coins are the most desirable for pendant jewelry because of their smaller size.For others, this LARGE 8 reale coin is exactly what their looking for. Make no mistake, it clearly makes a bold statement to whomever wears it. It has been fully museum certified and verified with an original Certificate of Authenticity.
