I bought a coin in 2013 while in Key West from another shop which told me it was authentic, turns out it was a fake. Being disappointed, I decided to replace it with one from Mel Fisher. It’s a beautiful piece of history and I couldn’t be happier with my purchases.
My husband loves it as an anniversary gift. It's very beautiful and impressive looking. Unfortunately we're not able to afford one of the authentic coins, thousands of $$ but this replica is gorgeous! We're very pleased.
I have received multiple compliments on the beauty of the coin. People are amazed that I have an object over 390 old from a sink ship.
