"Honestly, I'm a huge fan because Medieval collectables represents a rise in LARP culture in the US. That we can have a store devoted to such a huge variety of garb, costume, props, weapons, etc., that manages to stay afloat and is based in my home state is just huge and awesome. It's always the high point of my excitement at the Gencon dealer's hall and the place I always ask for gift cards from for birthdays and the like.'I've really had a lot of very cool stuff come from your store and I wish you guys all the best in expanding and continuing!"

Product Details

The Spanish dollar (also known as the piece of eight, the real de a ocho, or the eight-real coin) is a silver coin, worth eight reales, that was minted in the Spanish Empire after a Spanish currency reform in 1497. Long tied to the lore of piracy, pieces of eight were manufactured in the Americas and transported in bulk back to Spain (to pay for wars and various other things), making them a very tempting target for seagoing pirates. Some pirates were among the richest people in the world. Because the pieces of eight were widely used in Europe, the Americas, and the Far East, it became the first world currency by the late 18th century. Many existing currencies, such as the Canadian dollar, United States dollar, and the Chinese Yuan, as well as currencies in Latin America and the Philippine peso, were initially based on the Spanish dollar and other 8-reales coins.

This is a fun little pouch containing two each of four different sizes of coins. The largest size can be a bit challenging to get out of the bag because the top barely opens enough, but it's still great.
