The 1715 Fleet Society is honored to announce that the Florida Department of State Division of Historical Resources has extended to the Society permission to post images of the entire 1715 Fleet Gold Cob collection from the State of Florida.
This massive collection consists of approximately 1,500 gold cobs from several Spanish Colonial mints including Mexico, Lima, and others.
We will be featuring these cobs here on this site in groups of 150 over the next several months until they are all displayed.
Although there is nothing like the thrill of actually viewing these coins in real life, the high-resolution images provided by the State are almost like being there in-person.
We would like to extend our thanks to the Florida Division of Historical Resources for granting permission for the publication of their collection.
