  • 10 Cash Copper Coins From The 1809 Wreck Of The Admiral Gardner - Excellent Never Circulated Condition - Certificate of Authenticity Included!

    On January 25th 1809, the 800+ ton Admiral Gardner set sail for India from England with a cargo of anchors, cannonballs, copper ingots, iron bars, and copper coins freshly minted by the East India Company. As the ship sailed through the English Channel it encountered rough weather. Captain John Eastfield anchored the Admiral Gardner offshore to ride out what turned into a terrible storm, but the ship was blown onto the deadly "Goodwin Sands" sandbar. By the next morning the ship had sunk, taking it's cargo and the lives of 4 crewmen.

    The coins offered here were recovered from the wreck almost two centuries later, in 1985 and are of better quality than often seen.

    The obverse of these coins bears the Coat of Arms of the the East India Company. The reverse shows a Persian inscription giving the coins' values in the diplomatic language of Mughal, India - "X or 10 Cash" - an equivalent of 3/4 farthing in 1808. That made them acceptable by the local laborers as their medium of exchange.

      Amazing condition for a shipwreck coin over 200 years old. When this coin went on sale I had to get it. Awesome pieces of history. This coin is about the size of a quarter, whereas the 20 cash coin is about the size of a half dollar. Both are great to own.

      Truly an exciting piece of history to own. Fast shipping and just a beautiful artifact for any collection. Hard to believe it is as old as it is; exceptional coin.
