Description: This is a rare 2 escudos gold cob minted in Seville Spain during the reign of King Philip II. Old World Spanish gold cobs are highly sought after, and this piece displays a well centered and detailed shield on the obverse with the “S” mint mark signifying that it was minted in Seville. In addition, on the right side of the obverse, you can see under magnification what appears to be a partial date that appears to be the year 1590. On the reverse, you can see a beautiful and well centered Jerusalem cross and much of the details you would expect for a lightly circulated coin from this era.

Another nice feature about this coin is that it weighs 6.74 grams, which means it is full weight.

If you would like to own a real gold doubloon from the Spanish empire, this will make a great addition to your collection!
