SKU: FID9984

These Ten (X) Cash coins were struck in 1808 for the East India Company (EIC) for use in India. They were struck in Birmingham, England and then were to be sent by ship to India and this is where the problem started. The ship they were sent on sank on the Goodwin Sands, unfortunately all hands on board were lost and the ship stayed there until about 20 years ago when it was re-discovered.
We recently bought from one of the divers, his choice of Ten (X) Cash coins that he personally brought up with his own hands. Because they were submerged for almost 200 years most of the coins are in a remarkably high state of preservation.  Own a real piece of British / Indian Treasure coin for far less than you might expect to pay. These are a wonderful conversation piece as well as true treasure coins and a great item to show your friends.

Each coin comes with a certificate of authenticity.

These are fantastic Treasure coins. They were struck in Birmingham for the East India Company and sent to India by ship. Unfortunately, the ship they were on, The Admiral Gardner, sunk on the Goodwin Sands. About 25 years ago it was discovered and salvaged. The coins are copper and dated 1808. Over the last 200 years, many of them corroded especially the 20 (XX) Cash pieces, the smaller 10 (X) Cash coins tend to have weathered the sands better. The 20 Cash seems to be alright on one side and very worn on the other side. British / India Treasure coins at a most reasonable price and with a history that is both tragic and fascinating.
