Believe it or not, this is the original shape of the coin. Hand struck so no two ever look alike! This silver "Piece of 8" was recovered from the 1715 Fleet shipwreck site south of Cape Canaveral, Florida. We love how the sterling silver setting follows the shape of the coins. What a great conversation piece!
