This cash coin was recovered in 1985 from the Admiral Gardner.

According to all accounts, the Admiral Gardner and the Britannia, ships of the East India Company, were caught in a tremendous gale on the Goodwin Sands in January 1809. Consequently, both ships were lost.

The Admiral Gardner was en route to Madras, India with a cargo of copper ingots and coins that were specially minted for the East of India Company.
