The legendary Piece of Eight!

Known as a Piece of Eight, and associated with bloodthirsty pirates, shipwrecks and buried treasure, the Spanish-American Silver 8 Reales also plays a key role in Australian history. The leading international trade coin in the 17th and 18th centuries, the Silver 8 Reales naturally found its way to Australian shores. Indeed, the importance of the coin was such that it was included in the Proclamation of 1800 – Australia’s first official currency system. The bedrock upon which Australian numismatics has been built, the Spanish-American Silver 8 Reales commands a place in every collection.
