1061382 | MEXICO. Philip V. 1714-Mo J AV “Royal” 8 Escudos. PCGS MS66. Mexico City. 26.90gm. PHILIPVS V DEI G. Date around crowned arms / Legend and date around cross. KM 57.3. Date on reverse; Fr-7; Cal-Type 18 #91 (plate coin); Onza-397 (plate coin); Onza Main-389 (1986, plate coin); Grove-888, Cayon-9945.
Royal presentation issues were manufactured with great care and struck using specially prepared dies, setting them apart from the more crude cob coinage issued at this time in the Spanish colonial era. This attention to detail made them unparalleled in the New World. The purpose of these pieces is not fully documented, however it has been suggested that they were presented to local authorities, then set aside to be transported to Spain where they could be presented to important members of society, including the king, as an emblem of the successes of Spain’s colonial expansion. Today, any items recovered from them are considered “treasure coins” and these “Royal” types are the finds’ most coveted treasure. Exceedingly rare, superb gem mint state with full frosty luster.
Ex: D. Brent Pogue Collection; Ex: Millennia Collection (Goldberg – May 2008, Lot 1083, $270,000 hammer); Ex: Don Canaparo Collection; Ex: Schulman Coin & Mint, Inc. “Spanish Galleon Treasure” Auction November 27-29, 1972 Lot # 520 (front cover coin, on page 13 of the plates); commonly referred to as the “1715 Plate Fleet”; Plated in “The Standard Catalog of Mexican Coins” by Krause Publications.
