Pirate Pieces Of Eight Silver Bullion round
. 999 Pure Silver
so difficult to take image to show detailed workmanship
The Spanish influence on the American monetary system is still evident today. The original Spanish Dollar was a one ounce silver coin was valued at eight reales. This "piece of eight” could be fractioned into halves (four reales) or quarters (two reales) much as we do with modern dollars. These "pieces of eight” were also why the stock market traded stocks for hundreds of years measured in 1/8 until the decimalization in 2001.
Like the original Spanish Dollar, the only way to cut the Silver Shield Pieces of Eight into it’s eight pieces, is a lot of effort and strong tools. Unlike the original Spanish Dollar, Silver Shield Pieces of Eight has a unique reverse that shows the purity and weight of the (8) 1/8 oz pure silver pieces of the 1 ounce pure silver strike.
