Description

This silver pendant was made from a Master Engravers Die from 1714. It was found in waters near the U.S. Virgin Islands by a local diver, in the summer of 2015.

The die was headed back to England to be used to commemorate the crowning of King George I when fate intervened and the ship went down, taking the die from which the medallions were to be made with. This die sat on the floor of the Caribbean Sea for over 300 years!

The Protection Medallion depicts The Deity Britannia, The Protector of Britain, crowing King George I on October 20, 1714. The Latin words “Nulla Numen Abest” are visible along with perimeter. In Latin this is short for: “Where there is prudence, there is a protecting deity”. Along the bottom can be read:

INAVGERAT * XX * OCT

M D C C X I I II

(October 20,1714)

The Pirates Treasure Museum is the the only place in the world to acquire one of these pieces.
