Description: This is a rare Spanish Colonial 8 reales cob, better known as a “Piece of Eight”. Spanish Colonial cobs are highly sought after, especially those minted in Mexico and this piece displays a well centered and detailed shield on the obverse with the assayer and mint mark. On the reverse, you can see a beautiful Jerusalem cross and portions of the castles and lions. Another nice feature about this coin is that it weighs 27.19 grams, which means it is full weight!
