Shipwreck Coin Jewelry 14k Gold Jewelry Pendant Hollandia
On July 13, 1743, the Dutch ship Hollandia was traveling on her maiden voyage from Amsterdam, Holland, to Indonesia when it struck rocks off the coast of the Isles of Scilly. All 276 members of the crew perished. The ship was carrying silver coins and an assortment of goods.
The shipwreck was discovered with a large quantity of silver coins, bronze cannons and mortars by Rex Cowan, in 1971.
This beautiful shipwreck coin is mounted in a 33mm (1 1/2" W) 14k gold rope coin mount setting. It is an authentic, 4 Reales silver coin, minted in 1740. It has admirable, distinguishable features, considering it has been submersed in the saltwater of the ocean for almost 300 years.
