THIS IS ONE OF THE COINS DISCOVERED IN 1993 WHEN THE EL CAZADOR WAS FOUND 209 YEARS AFTER IT SANK. THE SHIP WAS ENROUTE FROM VERA CRUZ, MEXICO, TO NEW ORLEANS OVERFLOWING WITH A HALF MILLION SILVER COINS RANGING FROM ONE TO EIGHT REALES. THE SPANISH WANTED TO STABALIZE THE ECONOMY IN THEIR COLONIAL TERRITORY OF LOUISIANA, WHICH IT LOST TO FRANCE AND WHICH BECAME A PART OF THE U.S. WHEN PRESIDENT THOMAS JEFFERSON ENGINEERED THE LOUISIANA PURCHASE THAT MORE THAN DOUBLED THE GEOGRAPHIC AREA OF THE COUNTRY. AND THIS WAS BARELY25 YEARS AFTER THE AMERICAN ENGLISH COLONIES DECLARED ITSELF FREE OF ENGLISH RULE AND THE NEW COUNTRY OF THE UNITED STATES.  THE LOUISIANA PURCHASE ALSO BEGAN THE CONCEPT OF MANIFEST DESTINY IN WHICH THE U.S. GOVERNMENT WANTED TO STRETCH ITS TERRITORY BEYOND 'JUST' THE HEARTLAND PURCHASED FROM FRANCE. JEFFERSON, THE ARCHITECT OF THE PURCHASE, THEN CONTINUE HIS VISION OF A COUNTRY STRETCHING FROM SEA TO SEA, SENDING LEWIS & CLARK TO EXPLORE AND MAP THE NEW TERRITORY-- A PRECURSER TO THE U.S. CONTINUING TO EXPAND TO THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST, CALIFORNIA AND ULTIMATELY TEXAS, AS WELL.   THIS IS A GENUINE SPANISH 1 REAL FROM THAT SHIPWRECK, WHICH IS ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS MARINE DISCOVERIES OF ALL TIME, AS SOME HALF A MILLION SPANISH SILVER COINS WERE RECOVERED FROM THE SUNKEN VESSEL. THIS IS A VERY INEXPENSIVE WAY TO OWN A PIECE OF THIS HISTORY, AND PERHAPS EXPAND YOUR COLLECTION TO INCLUDE COINS OF THIS ERA EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT--YET--A FOREIGN COIN COLLECTOR. MANY COLLECTORS WHO REMAIN PRIMARILY US COIN, MEDAL AND TOKEN COLLECTORS HAVE EXPANDED TO COLLECTING NON-US COINS INTEGRAL TO THE FORMATION OF AND EXPANSION BY THE US. INCLUDED WITH THE PURCHASE OF THE ONE REAL COIN IS THE CARD SHOWN IN THE PHOTOS WHICH WAS CREATED AS PART OF THE MARKETING EFFORT TO REACH THE GENERAL PUBLIC, ESPECIALLY NON-COIN COLLECTORS INTERESTED IN THE HISTORICAL ASPECTS OF THE SHIPWRECK, WHEN THE EL CAZADOR WAS FOUND ALMOST 30 YEARS AGO. WE ALWAYS COMBINE SHIPPING TO SAVE OUR CUSTOMERS MONEY.
