8 reales 1783MO FF Genuine 18th Century Shipwreck Coin: El Cazador. On January 11, 1784, the Spanish warship El Cazador set sail from Vera Cruz, Mexico with a cargo of more than 400,000 8-reales silver dollars from the Mexico City Mint. Spain's Louisiana territory was in a financial crisis, so the Spanish King Carles III ordered the coins to be taken to New Orleans to help shore up the economy. En route to New Orleans, the El Cazador encountered a violent storm and sank to the bottom of the sea. The loss of the treasure had significant historical implications. Without the influx of the silver coins, the economy of the Spanish colonies continued to flounder. The Spanish king was ultimately forced to sell the Louisiana territory to France in 1800. Three years later, France sold the land to the United States in the Louisiana Purchase, which proved to be one of the greatest land deals in history. The Louisiana Purchase almost doubled the size of the United States and allowed the U.S. to expand westward to the Rocky Mountains. Widely recognized as America's first silver dollar, it was also known as a piece of eight. Spanish American coins circulated throughout the U.S. and remained legal tender in the U.S. until 1857. The value, size and weight of the U.S. silver dollar was based on the Spanish 8-reales coin. Comes in a deluxe case. Graded by NGC as Genuine. $500

I have thousands of world coins. I have tended to only buy coins with eye appeal, rather than coins that have ugly designs or are completely worn out or damaged. Since I have thousands of foreign coins for sale, I only have room for a small number of them for sale on-line. If you want to buy coins you don't see on my web site, let me know. I just might have them for sale.
