1733 Spanish Treasure Fleet  – 8 Reales Silver Cob

The 1733 Spanish treasure fleet was a convoy of 21 ships that set sail from Havana, Cuba, in July 1733, bound for Spain. Carrying a vast wealth of gold, silver, and other precious items from the New World, the fleet’s voyage was cut short when a powerful hurricane struck it. As a result, many of the ships were either sunk or wrecked along the Florida Keys. While the Spanish authorities managed to recover a significant portion of the sunken treasure in the following years, some of the wreckage and their valuable cargo remain lost to this day. The remnants of this fleet have since become the focus of marine archaeology and treasure-hunting expeditions.
