Pieces of Eight! More commonly referred to as 'Dollars' or Eight Reale Pieces in the period these high quality replicas are our very own product, the coins are hand cast from lead free pewter then each is cut by hand to give it a unique angular shape. Then each is hand struck with a period die.

 

£2.50 each or 10 for £20

 

 

Also can be supplied with a hole drilled on a silver plated chain. £3.50

Doubloons- these are the best replicas I could source, this stamp design was in use throughout the Golden Age of Piracy as well as before and after (till 1733). Doubloon means to double- gold had double the value of the same amount of silver so any gold coin was a doubloon...

 

Size- somewhat larger than a 50p and thick as butter!

£ 1.50 each 10 for £11

Eight Reale Pieces- 'Pieces of Eight'

 

What's going on? Quite simple really, once those rough cut bits of silver (as well as bars) reached Europe they were melted once more and this time nice round coins were minted- these had various values, including these 4 reale coins.  These are, again, the best I could source.
