Posted on 4/26/2019

Gold rarities from a famous shipwrecked fleet are among the NGC-certified coins offered in the Daniel Frank Sedwick sales.

NGC-certified gold coins attributed to the famous 1715 Spanish Treasure Fleet will be among the rarities to be offered at upcoming online auctions by Daniel Frank Sedwick LLC. The fleet was carrying gold and silver when it wrecked in a hurricane near what is now Vero Beach, Florida, on its way from Cuba to Spain.

The coins include a 1705L H Peru 8 Escudos graded NGC MS 62 with an estimate of $15,000 to $30,000 (USD); a 1714/3L M Peru 8 Escudos graded NGC MS 62 estimated at $15,000 to $22,500 (USD); and a 1713L M Peru 8 Escudos graded NGC MS 62 with an estimate of $12,500 to $20,000 (USD).

Meanwhile, other coins from Latin America estimated to sell for amounts in the low five figures are among the top lots in the series of sales scheduled for May 2-3.
