Typically, after it was traded for something, the owner of a Spanish silver cob would melt it down for the silver. This is why the 8 Reales Silver Cob Replica has such an unusual shape, as they were made to be temporary coins. This made them particularly popular among pirates. This replica is made from spun cast, lead-free pewter in the shape of an 8 Reales Spanish cob. The face of the coin has been stamped with historical imagery. This museum quality replica coin is set onto a card that features historical information about the coin on its back. The perfect addition to any collection, this realistic replica makes a great gift for coin enthusiasts and history fans!
