Bill Pearson and Atocha.com have always strived to
bring you the best quality of Atocha coins in each
grade. We have over 34 years of experience in the salvaging and selling
of treasure coins and artifacts. Born in Key West, Florida, Bill Pearson
owned and operated Conch Coin Company, one of the largest retail treasure
businesses in the world. In 1993, Bill founded Forecastle
Treasures, Inc., providing treasure coin jewelry at wholesale prices
to the public. Forecastle Treasures has been on online
since early 1996 - one of the first treasure coin dealers on the web.
Now, our primary business is the wholesale of Atocha and other
treasure coins to jewelry stores throughout the U.S. and the Caribbean. However
we reserve the
rare Atocha two reale and other rare Atocha
coins for online sale to benefit our many customers who have supported us over
the last 25 years. We have been told that some of our prices are higher than
other online sellers on some coins in each grade. We urge you to compare the
quality of the coin that you see, not just the grade. Due to the numerous graders
of Atocha coins and the urgency by the investors to get these
Atocha coins to market after the discovery of the Nuestra
Señora de Atocha off the coast of Key West, some coins
were plainly misgraded, and some graders held Atocha coins
to a higher standard than others. This resulted in many grading mistakes. We
strive to pick the best Atocha coins in each grade. Our prices
are always a great deal cheaper than Key West prices, and when you compare the
quality against other websites, most of which don't have two reales from the
Atocha, I think that you will find that you will have a much
greater value purchasing one of ours. It pays to compare, but we feel you will
find us the best everytime!
Forecastle Treasures, Inc. offers you beautiful, one-of-a-kind
hand-crafted treasure coin jewelry from the Atocha and various
other wrecks and sites. All coins are genuine, fully certified, and mounted
in 14K and 18K gold or Sterling Silver, with prices starting as low as $125.
Atocha coins in all grades are discounted from the Mel Fisher
Museum prices and are certified by Mel himself.
Enjoy owning and wearing a "piece of history" provided
by a well-known and experienced dealer. You can shop with confidence in the
quality and authenticity of each Atocha piece, as well as,
all other pieces.
Each treasure piece is unique! Most have been struck by hand,
and they come in a variety of shapes. Rarely are the details or design fully
legible. Our hand-crafted jewelry designs have been created to compliment the
uniqueness of each one-of-a-kind treasure.
Therefore, no one else will own a treasure piece exactly
