Philip II Eight Real Piece

This Philip II Eight Real Piece has been lovingly reproduced and hand finished to the original design to look as authentic as possible.

This eight-real coin is an example of the first global currency. The same weight as the English crown, the French franc and, later, the American silver dollar, it was given the nickname 'piece of eight', from the Spanish 'peso de ocho reales'. From 1570s, the eight-real coin was the main way in which silver was transported from Spain's captured lands in South and Central America.

Made famous by Robert Louis Stevenson's parrot in Treasure Island, pieces of eight are closely linked with pirates in the collective imagination.

This faithfully reproduced coin comes attached to an information card in a protective plastic wallet.
