I was just down to my condo at royal palm my one of my friends sons a local kid found a coin dated 1819 it is a silver coin from spain about the size of a silver dollar .i know there where ship wrecks near and on the island ??anybody have any idea how it might have got to the island ? there are stories about ship wrecks .But i think a little to new?? for pirates or things like that /but there might be a chest or more of these things .. I checked on the vaule only worth $10 us .unless there are a ton more buried there ???maybe gold??maybe ? i know you might think this is a danny 2 story but i am not joking ..Any help would be helpful ..and yes the kid will turn the coin over to the proper authorites so he the 12 year old will not go to jail ..assuming he has not fled the counrty yet with the location map lol lol lol ..

Captain!!!

...sorry to say that these are worthless and a waste of time.

I tell you what... have your son's friend show me exactly where he found this antiquated, useless coin and in return, I'll clean up the mess the Spanish left behind. In exchange, I'll also arrange for your son's friend (and any/all others that he has already divulged said location to) to enjoy a long, leisurely fishing trip far far far on the other side of the reef.

Probably a 8 reales Spanish or Mexico silver coin.


I hope that someday we can put aside our fears and prejudices and just laugh at people.

Somewhat common collector's coin. From a coin shop?
