Say hello to one of the most famous coins of its time - The Spanish Dollar! Minted during the "Golden Age of Piracy" from the 1490s - 1860s, this coin was mass-produced in Spain as well as various Latin American countries such as Mexico, Peru, Colombia and more.
Each dollar had a net worth equal to 8 Spanish Reales, earning it the more commonly known nickname - "A Piece of Eight." Considered to be one of the first "world coins," The Spanish Dollar held international value for its high silver content and fine craftsmanship. Some countries even adopted it as their own legal tender by countermarking the coins with their own official seal.
Being such an accepted form of currency in different countries around the globe, it quickly became the preferred method of payment for all avenues of trading, especially with and amongst pirates.
