The term cob, as in the Spanish cobs that are in the Spanish Silver Cob Set, is the American term for the peso, which was originally called the piece of eight, and then the Spanish dollar. They are well known for their odd shape! This replica coin set includes an eight Reales Spanish cob, a four Reales Spanish cob, a two Reales Spanish cob, and a one Real Spanish cob. Each of these irregularly shaped coins has been stamped with historical imagery on their faces. These coins were particularly popular among pirates and privateers.
