Although a recovery expedition was mounted in 1744 the salvage attempt was unsuccessful. Later attempts to find the wrecksite were futile. This rare silver coin shows normal sea corrosion. Professional conservation has revealed some of the crudely struck original design elements.
The obverse of these silver cobs features a pillar and waves design (symbolizing the Pillars of Hercules). The reverse of these cobs feature a bold cross (symbolizing the union of church and state), and the lions and castles that symbolize the merger of the medieval Kingdoms of Leon and Castilla.
